Got it--thanks. And the phone call offer wasn't from me and you don't have to accept it

Any drainage from that?

No sir

Are you there
Dermatologist: Dr. Chip, General pratice replied 11 months ago

OK

That's a totally benign cyst--not any kind of cancer

But if it's tender it may be infected

So for now you can try moist warm packs for a few days to see if it will drain but if it doesn't you'll need to see your doctor to have it lanced and you may need a course of antibiotics

Please let me know if you need any more information

I can go as far as to say it could have resulted in saving my sons life and our entire family now knows what bipolar is and how to assist and understand my most wonderful son, brother and friend to all who loves him dearly. Thank you very much

Corrie MollPretoria, South Africa

I thank-you so much! It really helped to have this information and confirmation. We will watch her carefully and get her in for the examination and US right away if things do not improve. God bless you as well!

ClaudiaAlbuquerque, NM

Suggested diagnosis was what I hoped and will take this info to my doctor's appointment next week.
I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
