Hello this is Dr. Stan and I will assist you with your question today. I am board certified and I have 40 years of patient experience. I am happy to help you.

Can you send pictures?

Expert:  Dr Stan replied 11 months ago.

While I await your pictures. The possibilities for the "Lump" could be a cyst from a blocked oil gland under the skin or a tumor (benign or malignant). A picture will help me to differentiate the two. If a cyst, finding the opening and gently squeezing will remove the built up lubricant (wax like material) and reduce its size. If however it is a solid tumor you will need to see a Urologist to determine cause and possibly have it removed. So, please upload a picture so I can provide you with more information.

I am available to answer any additional questions you may have. Thank you for allowing me to provide assistance. I hope your medical problem(s) are resolved soon and you feel better. If you find the information I provided helpful, please rate me with 5-Stars. Thank you

Have you scheduled an appointment with a Urologist to have your "lump" evaluated and treated?
