Black Lump On The Temple That Feels Painful And Enlarged?
Afternoon … I’m a 16-year-old teenager. So like this, in my left temple there was a small lump, which I thought was originally (even now) a mole that wanted to grow. That mole was already there when I was 15 early. Initially only a speck of bump. Eventually, if touched the jendolan grows and somewhat enlarges. The color is not like a mole (black, brown, etc,). But it’s still like my skin color, but inside the window is black (looks blurred from the outside because it’s covered with skin). Well, lately that bump has caused pain. Not only when I deliberately hold. But, when I close my eyes, I force (brake). Is that true the characteristics of a mole that wants to grow (like my diagnosis) or is there something else? Because I’m a little afraid this isn’t a mole. Thank you..
Good evening, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. Mole, or which in medical language is called nevus, is a normal skin condition. Moles generally have the characteristics of brown or black spots on the skin. Its surface can be flat or slightly protruding, and comes from a collection of skin dyes called melanin.
Normal moles are painless, do not increase in size, no more than 6 mm in diameter, do not itch let alone bleed. So in your case, from the description you are telling, it's most likely not a mole. Even moles, are not normal moles and require further examination. Possibilities that can occur are:
Growth of certain protein contents in the skin Skin thickening Cysts or fluid-filled sacs Growth of fat tissue Warts Tumors or cancer
Our advice, you should immediately consult a dermatologist, because this condition may require immediate treatment. By being examined and seen directly, it will be easier to determine what tendencies you have and how to handle them. In addition to direct interviews and physical examinations, your doctor may conduct supporting examinations that are tailored to your needs.
Meanwhile, avoid touching, touching or playing with the lump, do not also apply any medicine and do not try to solve or provide other independent treatment. So, hopefully answering your question.
