Hello, this is Dr. David. I have read your question and I'm ready to help.

what medical question do you have?
Hi--you originally asked for me and I was blocked out of the question. Let me know when you're back on and we'll talk
Customer: replied 3 years ago.
Hi, I found a semi hard smooth lump on front of shoulder/chest area a week ago. Dr said either cyst or calcification. It's about two inches out from collarbone and is not lymph node. About three inches up from armpit crease so not the armpit or breast. Early on skin was red and knot felt like pimple deep below skin that couldn't rise to top to drain. It's about diameter of pencil eraser or English pea.

Cancer?
No--not cancer if the skin was red. Sounds for all the world like a sebaceous cyst and nothing at all serious. Just to be certain, I'd get an x-ray of the chest with rib details but this doesn't sound like bone at all
