Customer Question

I have a bump on my nose near my eye that I think has been there for a year. It gradually got bigger. I thought it was from my new glasses that were too tight in the nose piece, but after wearing contacts more often, and it not going away I am no longer I'm worried. Looking for a local Dr to see and came across this website. Can you help?

This looks like a slightly inflammed cyst.

Possibly a sebaceous cyst.

these need to be removed to go away.

Use hot compresses of now.

You will need to see a dermatologist or plastic surgeon, given the location.
