No itchiness or bleeding, it feels soft and cushion y and smooth to the touch. I do have blackheads and pimples intermittently, i only flush from anger or embarrassment and the rest of the time my skin has a normal tone, i am 47 yrs old woman. Didnt have a biopsy at hospital. Cant upload a photo.

I hope that was not it as far as your answers go? it costs me less to see a doctor face to face. even doing my own research has given me more than asking if its itchy or bleeds

Thanks for the reply,

According to description of symptoms the bump is most likely a small granuloma due to reactionary response to minor trauma by your previous laser treatment. These kind of lumps are benign and goes away with time if you massage the area at least thrice a day. There is nothing much to worry about. It does not sound anything to be concerned about.

Hope this helps.
