Fluid-filled Lumps On The Skin Of The Chest And Back?
, I’m a 30 year old male, I have a problem with some lumps on the skin on the chest and back, the lumps don’t hurt when I press them. I once pressed hard and it broke inside, but it only caused inflammation. Because I’m curious one day I was stabbed with a needle and it came out weak liquid like cooking oil.rnWhat I want to ask is whether this will spread to all parts of the body? And is this a disease or just acne? thank you
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Lumps that appear on the skin of the chest and back that ooze an oil-like fluid when cracked can indicate a variety of conditions. It is not recommended to break, or even pierce the lump forcibly using a tool that is not necessarily sterile, because this procedure has the risk of causing the lump to become inflamed or secondary to infection, making it more difficult to heal.
Some of the possibilities that can cause lumps in your chest and back include:
Infections, for example folliculitis, varicella, herpes zoster, acne, scabies Sebaceous cysts (fluid-filled sacs originating from oil glands) Dermoid cysts (benign tumors in the form of sacs containing various structures of skin tissue, ranging from sweat glands, hair, teeth, or nerve) Lipoma (benign tumor originating from the fat gland) Pilaris cyst (benign tumor in the form of a sac originating from the hair root) Contact dermatitis (skin inflammation due to contact with allergenic or irritating substances) Benign tumors, malignant tumors, or other infections How long have you had the lump exactly? Is it getting bigger? What's the color like? Does it feel hard, soft, easy or difficult to move? Are there any other complaints that you also share?
Our advice, you should immediately check your complaint to a dermatologist. The doctor can also take tissue samples and lumps that appear for microscopic examination to assess the cells that make up the lump.
In the meantime, don't manipulate the lumps that appear, especially without the doctor's knowledge. Always maintain personal hygiene, namely by bathing 2 times a day, wearing clean and dry clothes, and not exchanging personal items with others. Do not also apply anything to the lump unless it is prescribed directly by a doctor.
Hope it helps ya..
