Causes Of Bumps On The Head?
Good night, I just detected a purpleish lump on my upper head the size of a small rubber band. The bumps do not cause pain or itching. I don’t know when the lump started to start, but the information from the doctor who checked it should have been a while. And the doctor who examined asked to check with a specialist doctor. From what I read from articles on the internet, it is said that epidermal cysts or pillar cysts can occur from a history of people suffering from acne. And I happen to be someone who has acne and uses a doctor’s cream. Are these bumps dangerous? If it’s not dangerous, can it go away on its own? Thank you.

All lumps that are not normal in the human body in the medical world are called tumors. Based on the type, divided into benign or malignant tumors. Similarly, to find out whether the lump is dangerous or not determined from the type of tumor. To know for certain the different types of tumors, it must go through histopathological examination (examination of tissue under a microscope), but in general can be estimated through several tumor characteristics, including:
Speed of tumor growth, benign tumors generally grow slowly, while malignant tumors grow in a short time Mobility. In benign tumors are generally easy to move, and malignant tumors are more attached to the surrounding tissue (difficult to move) edge. Benign tumors generally have regular and clear edges, and malignant tumors have irregular or uneven edges. Consistency. Benign tumors generally have a softer consistency, and malignant tumors have a denser and harder consistency. Some things you can do are:
Avoid pressing or injuring the lump Maintain facial hygiene Reduce consumption of fatty foods Avoid stress If the lump enlarges, or starts accompanied by pain, bleeding, starts to bother you (both in function and appearance), I suggest to consult back to a specialist surgery or dermatologist so that a more complete examination and appropriate treatment.
Thus, hopefully can help.
