What Doctor’s Epidermoid Cyst Examination Should Be?
Hello, I’m male and have a small lump on the left chest. The size of a small marble, but the surface is rather dark when I press. After I searched the internet, it resembled an epidermoid cyst. For direct examination and treatment, I just go to a general practitioner or go directly to a skin specialist or where ?? Thanks …
