I'm sorry that your question wasn't answered in a timely manner. Please contact***@******.*** who will explain your financial obligation to this site. If you find it acceptable, I'd like to see a close-up photo of this lump and I'd like to know what was found when it was drained - a clear fluid, a cheesy exudate, bloody serum?
