Hi

I have this lump on my head here (I will post a photo) I have had it for about two years now, the size of it is around 0.5-0.6cm and it has bled once. I have another one showing behind my ear but not as big as this. It hurts at times and sometimes feels a little itchy and burns.

Does anyone know what it is?

I'd say see your GP but there is a good chance they'll presbribr some antibiotics (either as something to put on your skin or capsules) or maybe a corticosteroid.

Oh ok, does it look like an infection then for antibiotics?

Seriously, go to the doctors if you're worried. That's exactly what they're there for.

Go again, they're not actually *that* busy that they can't see you about something that's worrying you.

It could be a cyst? I'd just go to the GP. You need to be careful about those types of things, especially if it's bled a little before it could be something more sinister.

Not necessarily. For all we know, it could be cancer. You are asking a bunch of unqualified students (most in fields unrelated to medicine) to give a diagnosis based on a very poor quality image... Why not just see a doctor and get a proper medical option?

Because it's so stressful? And waisting their time is a massive issue these days. I can send a better photo if you like? I thought skin cancer was only in the older population?
