Between my two fingers. It isn't very visible.

Got it--hold on please

Nothing at all serious there

It's a small benign cyst--not any kind of cancer

It's basically a clogged oil gland

It may go away on it's own in time or your doctor can remove it with a liquid nitrogen freezing technique

Please let me know if you need any more information

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.

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.
