Customer Question
Hi I woke up...

Hi I woke up yesterday with a dent about an inch long along my hair line close to right temple. It doesn’t hurt but it does feel tender. Today

Doctor's Assistant: How long have you had the pain? What seems to make the pain better or worse?

No pain just tenderness. But that dent was not there before.

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

Today I see see the vein dark green on my right temple leading directly to the dent on my hairline

Where the ring and middle finger are is where the dent is located
Doctor: Dr Chip (M.D.), Doctor replied 10 months ago

Got it--thanks

What you've got there is a small cyst that's making things seem dented

Nothing too serious but if it's at all tender it may be getting infected so I suggest you have your doctor take a look to see if you might need a course of antibiotics

Please let me know if you need any more information

A cyst? Inside ?
Customer reply replied 10 months ago
Because nothing like a cyst is present outside the skin.

I got blood work back that I have ANA present in my blood. Would that have something to do with this ?
Doctor: Dr Chip (M.D.), Doctor replied 10 months ago

Actually yes--not actually protruding out of the area but deeper inside

But this wouldn't be related to your ANA test

What is this typically related to ?

Just a blocked oil gland--nothing serious

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.

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.
