Customer Question
I have a pea...

I have a pea sized bump at the back of my neck at the bottom of the hairline. It doesn't hurt. Thank you for your help

Doctor's Assistant: How long have you been dealing with this issue? Are you experiencing any numbness or tingling?

1-3 days maybe and no

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

I've had the same thing happen behind my ear and went away on its own

Hello doctor. Thank you
Dermatologist: Dr. Chip, General pratice replied 4 months ago

This is a sebaceous cyst--a clogged oil gland

Nothing at all serious and usually these do go away in time

If it doesn't it can easily be removed under local anesthesia by your doctor

Please let me know if you need any more information

It is also a bit stiff. How long do they normally go away on their own?

I feel so much better today, and upon further investigation believe that there is a chance that the responses I got saved me from a serious, even life threatening situation. I am very grateful to the experts who answered me.

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!

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.
