I am a 34 yrs old male. 9-10 months back i got itching

Customer Question

I am a 34 yrs old male. 9-10 months back i got itching sensation at the back particularly in the subscapular area with painless rash. No other symptom and it was self limited. Five months back I felt a firm, irregular, non-tender mass and there are scratch marks over the swelling. It seems the swelling is in the dermis ( it is totally skin swelling). I visited a physician and he reassured me as a tumorous calcinosis lesion and ordered FNA just for clarity but the FNAC was not done. Currently ( 05 months since i noticed it), I have itching in the past 2 months and swelling seems to increase in size though I am not sure of the size as it is not visible for inspection. Can I get differentials for this condition? thank you in advanc

FNA was canceled as the clinickan was not convienced enough to proceed with further pathologic investigation

Hello Dr Thomas!
The FNA was cancelled

This sounds like a lipoma or cyst
What does your MD say it is?
