    So made a thread to ask if anyone had ever experienced a possible pimple under the skin, it's fairly hard but painless

    Inner thigh area

    Already seen a Dr just wondering if anyone else has experienced such a thing

    what are you expecting? Could be a cyst, cancer or something else.

    Go get a second opinion. Insist on a biopsy or a scan.

    Could be a sebaceous cyst, lipoma or an enlarged lymph node.

    Inner thigh is a pretty common area for these to a appear. I had one a few weeks back. My doc said it was just a cyst probably caused by an ingrown hair and that it would go away on its own. She was right.

    I'll have to look into these alternate possibilities

    I've survived cancer once, I'm more than a bit scared of having to face it again

    My fear isn't really about me....I have a 3 year old girl, I don't want to be gone

    I know how you feel. If your doc is aware of your medical history and isn't sending you off for an ultrasound at the least and a biopsy, find a new gp.

    What you've experienced would make you a bit paranoid. The weird thing would be if you weren't.

    She told me to get an ultrasound in a fortnight

    Checked all the lymph node spots throughout the torso and thinks it's likely an ingrown hair however it isn't visible or a lymph node from a minor foot infection

    Almost feels like her probabilities but it's just under the skin, a bit deeper than normal in the fatty zone

    I really dislike that my mind thinks it's likely cancer, though in probably paranoid

    Also doctors aren't easy to come by in Hobart

    They have a set number as once it hits said number everyone not on the list is locked out

    If you have a referral, make the trip to the pathologist sooner. You're not paranoid mate, you're being proactive..

    How is it going? I agree with senses that better to get it checked just to be sure.

    Just a few things to put you ease a bit.
    I had what you described and it was a sebaceous cyst.

    I'm in health (not a doctor) and have referred my patients for lumps before, one time it did turn out to be cancer and I knew by the feel of it that it wasn't right.

    Your doctor would be the same surely, also she's checked your lympnodes so she's looking for signs of infection just incase, so she was trying to be thorough.

    Make sure you keep us posted.

    It's gotten softer and smaller...I think

    Looked at all the info including pics of what may be

    There's not a mark, it's just like looking at man thigh, can't even see a hole for hair to come out of, no discoloration nor pain from pressing it

    Not a mark,too small to see...... I've never seen a pimple be so blind.... it's f**king bizarre....
