Is this cancer?
I am 17 years old. Male. And i have some acne on my face. There is an inflammed bump, kind of sore and sensitive.  No color really.  So far, it is just a bump from my inner eye about 1/2 down nose. Can't tell what it is.  Could be cancer? or could it be just like an in-grown pimple? There is no redness really just a large bump.  Slightly firm but seems like some liquid inside.  Can someone please help answer?

Hi, we are patients and not able to diagnose but my thought is that it's a blind pimple that hasn't matured yet.  Lots of warm soaks .. can use a teabag in water to apply or a raw potato heated up in the microwave and wrapped in something as a compress are my thoughts that I've done in the past.  It should help "ripen' it so it comes to head.  If it's persistent could be a boil which is a giant pimple.  If you think it may be of concern, have a trusted adult and Doc take a look, too.   If it is other than a generic pimple, have it looked at if it doesn't heal, opens and doesn't heal, looks suspicious, etc.  Some skin cancers are red bumps.
