Can someone help me...

Recommended Posts

Ok, the other day I noticed under my right chin, I had what looked like a pimple, but the next day when I woke up it was sore, really red, and has what feels like a lump/bump underneath this. I am freaking out that this is cancer or something

Can anyone look at the pictures and tell me what you think?

That is definitely not cancer so dont worry about that. It looks like either a cyst, a papule, or a nodule. Wrap ice in a paper towel and apply it to your pimple for one minute on one minute off and do that until the ice has melted. Do that three times a day until it heals

Hi there! Don't freak out; that's a regular old cyst/nodule.

Don't try to squeeze it.

See the last link in my signature for tips on helping a lesion like that heal or at least feel better. :)
