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.
Hi, thanks for your comment. I have setup an appointment with my dermatologist for Sept 4th, 2012. I will post the results...
Saw my dermatologist and she recommends getting the bump removed and analyzed just in case. My appt with a plastic surgeon is next Wednesday, 9/12/12.
Thanks for the update. It is most likely an oily cyst but better to be safe than sorry. I hope the plastic surgeon is skilled enough to not leave a scar.
Thanks, me too :). I'm not too concerned about it for now. I know not to get too worried about something until after lab results. I'll post what happens.
I got it removed. It wasn't even a cyst, it was a hemangioma - a bundle of vessels under the skin. They told me it looked like a varicose vein. So all is well. Thanks for the support!
Fantastic news. Thanks for the update.
