I believe I have a nodule on my neck..it's a big, hard lump and has been there now for over one week. There is no sign of a white head forming etc. For nodules, do you need to get an injection, or can you just put benzoyl peroxide on it etc and hope it goes away? I am a bit worried, since it's rather big and will likely dent. I have never been told about injections etc before for acne.
The other ones I have around my chin are cysts, I think, since they always come back in the same place and get whiteheads. I always used to pick and squeeze them when I was younger, so is there any hope they will clear?
Well I can't determine anything from the picture... but from what you're saying, it could be a cyst or something else. How big is it? I don't want to freak you out, but I'm serious, get to a family doctor now. Insist on getting some sort of scan. Somebody I know noticed a hard lump on the side of his neck. Doctors thought it might be a cyst, he got a scan done, and they found a questionable mass. Sent him to an Ear Nose & Throat doctor, where they drew sample biopsies out of it and confirmed a high stage malignant cancer. He underwent surgeries, treatment, etc... he's doing well now though. So I really hope that what you have is just a cyst or a nodule. But don't wait... get it checked out ASAP. Stay calm, & best of luck to you.
