The Lump Between The Eyebrows Above The Nose?
hello, I want to ask last year to be precise in September 2018, I had surgery to remove the lump between the eyebrows, said the professor who handled it, it was not dangerous, just a lipoma, but this month the lump appeared again right next to my surgery, what do you think is the solution? can the lipoma grow back? and how do you fix it? I have used herbal medicine but the lump has not shrunk. thanks in advance 🙏🏼
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com. I am dr. Princess Claudya will help answer your questions.
Lipoma is a benign tumor originating from fatty tissue. These tumors can come back, especially if the previous removal was not clean. But if you say that the new lump is next to the surgical wound, it is likely a new lump. Because if it comes from an old lump, of course the location is right on the surgical wound.
These lumps can be:
Xanthoma / xantelasma: yellow lumps around the eyes due to cholesterol buildup
Syringoma: a benign tumor originating from the sweat glands around the eye
Atheroma: a tumor originating from an oil gland, usually with a blackish spot in the middle
Furuncles / boils: lumps due to inflammation, red, painful, filled with pus
Kalazion: a skin-colored lump on the eyelid due to prolonged inflammation
To ascertain the cause, it is better to consult further with the surgeon to be examined directly. The doctor will dig further into the course of your disease and will examine the area you are complaining about in detail. If necessary, the doctor will carry out supporting examinations such as a biopsy. And after that the doctor will provide treatment for you in accordance with the underlying condition.
The things you need to do to prevent worsening and improve the condition are:
Do not press on the lump or try to get its contents out. This can result in a wound that has the potential for infection
Wash hands before touching the lump and before touching the eye area
Protect the bumps and the area around the eyes from dust and dirt
Compress with warm water to reduce pain if any and help expel the contents of the lump (in the condition of the lump filled with pus)
That is the explanation from me. Hopefully helpful and useful. Get well soon :)
