Complaints in the form of lumps that appear more and more in parts of your body, possibly can be caused by epidermal cyst, where this condition occurs due to blockage of oil on the skin due to dead cells on the skin or due to bacteria. At the beginning of this skin oil gland blockage, the surface will appear elevated, usually can be 1-3 mm in size, but in conditions where oil production continues to increase and can not get out, then the size can be enlarged, on average can range around 5- 10mm If bacterial contamination is involved in this blockage, it can cause inflammation and pain until the buildup of pus in it, and this condition is usually followed by enlargement of lumps more than 1 cm, or depending on the conditions of inflammation and infection that occurs.
These epidermal cysts often appear in several body points, such as the arms, back, armpits, or abdomen. The number of these lumps can be triggered by a condition of personal hygiene that is less than optimal, thus closing the pathway out of the oil glands on the patient's skin. This cyst is also called a cebaceous cyst. Jam is caused by dead tissue that closes, it can also be caused by trauma to the skin, scratching, scars from surgery or acne. However, all this needs to be ascertained directly by your dermatologist or your surgeon to ascertain the cause.
Apart from the epidemic malfunction / cebacous cyst, several other medical conditions can also provide a similar picture, such as:
1. Benign tumors of multiple fatty tissue or lipomas
2. Neurofibromatosis or nerve tissue tumors
4. Folliculitis or inflammation of hair roots
The existence of a lump in the patient's body, the cause can not be ascertained without direct examination by a doctor. This is important, because doctors need to do a direct examination, see and confirm. Under certain conditions, the doctor needs to aspirate or take a sample or sample from the lump using a syringe, so that it can be ascertained, whether the lump is filled with fluid or not.
Therefore, you should consult directly with the doctor who treats you. The doctor will conduct a direct examination and see first hand the condition of this complaint. The results of the examination will be a reference for doctors in providing appropriate treatment, whether surgery is necessary or not.
For the time being, you should not squeeze these lumps so as not to cause injury and the risk of infection and pus formation in the lump. Clean your skin regularly and keep it clean.
