Hi there. My name is***** to hear that Cyrus has a lump. I will do my best to help with your question. First I have a few questions to help me better understand your situation.

​How long has the lump been noticed?
Does it appear to be growing or causing him discomfort?

Is there any redness, hairloss, bleeding or discharge?

If you like, you can attach a photo of the lump by clicking on the paperclip button and uploading a photo from your computer. This will greatly assist me in understanding Cyrus' lump.
