Lump In The Right Hand That Grows Back Even After Surgery?
Afternoon, I want to ask. On my right thumb there was a growth which was originally rooted in the growth of old skin and had its bumps. The doctor at the puskesmas said it was fisheye and gave me callusol. I have been using it for 3 months but it doesn’t heal even worse and worse until my fingers heat up and my right hand hurts. Then I went to a private doctor. The surgeon said that it was not a fish eye but a virus **** (I forgot the name). 2 weeks ago I had to do the surgery. Oh yes underneath it has grown again a small one. So I had the surgical removal of 2 pcs. A few days after that also grew 2 pcs on the index finger under the nail of the left hand but still small. Why do you think this is wrong? Why did he grow again? thank you
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
There are several conditions that can cause the appearance of a painful mass in the skin. Unfortunately, you do not explain exactly what the characteristics of the mass are, both in terms of size, consistency, surface, and various other properties. Therefore, it is difficult for us to ascertain the exact cause of the mass.
Some examples of conditions that might trigger your complaint are:
Warts (Human Papillomavirus virus infection)
Other skin infections, for example folliculitis, acne, shingles, scabies, cutaneous candidiasis, tinea manum
Clavus (fish eye)
Hyperkeratosis (excessive deposition of skin protein on the surface of the skin)
Arthritis (arthritis), for example due to gout (gout), rheumatoid arthritis
Benign or malignant tumors, and so on
If it is true that you have had surgery to remove the mass, but the mass is repetitive and getting bigger, you should not let it drag on. Check the complaint again to the doctor, dermatologist, or surgeon so that the best treatment is provided. To find out the diagnosis of the cause of the mass, in addition to physical examinations, it is likely that doctors will also conduct supporting tests, for example biopsies, allergy tests, and so on. When it is true that a viral infection is causing your complaint, often this condition will improve with optimal endurance. However, in some cases, additional treatments may also be needed, such as giving antiviral drugs, surgery, laser, or other medical procedures.
In the meantime, what you should do is:
Do not give drugs or substances carelessly to the masses that appear without the advice of a doctor
Do not squeeze or squeeze the masses that arise
Take care of yourself, especially the finger area, so that it is always clean
Minimize excessive activity using your fingers, if you feel pain
Reduce activities that cause excessive friction on the fingers, for example washing, and so on
Hope this helps ...
