I have a bump under my left eyebrow, under the skin, and have had it for a while (a year or so). It kind of moves around a bit if I feel it. It got bigger, but I didn't really worry about it, having read it sounds like a common thing. But today it changed - I felt a pressure on my the top of my eye, between the socket and eyeball, like it was getting pressed down. I felt the lump, and it has divided and it's like I now have two lumps, and between them where I felt the pressure the skin no longer seems to have part of the lump. So it's like the lump divided and part of it went down towards my eye. I'm a little worried about it now. I had melanoma in 2003 but it was "mild" - it only required excision not chemo or radiation. Could this be cancer?
I think you should see a doctor about any lumps or bumps you have. With your history of melanoma you should be regularly (6 monthly) be seeing a dermatologist. Unfortunately you are at higher risk of melanoma, having had one, even if it was caught early so please get any new moles or lumps checked out quickly.
