this lump will discharge a clear liquid if it is squeezed, i am very concerned about this and what it could be, i have heard it is just puberty and will go away, i am an 18 year old male

User avatar Hello --

This is a remarkably common problem especially in adolescence, and yours sounds to be a unilateral, small lump. These will sometimes emit some liquid if squeezed (probably better to not do that) and most often they resolve in a few years on their own, unless obesity is a related issue. It sounds like that's not the problem here, so while it's probably really annoying and you're probably more aware of it than anyone else, it sounds like a relatively small puffiness compared to some.

Again, most instances of this resolve on their own in late adolescence, early adulthood, so you're probably close to having it disappear. Hope this helps. Good luck to you and please follow up with us here as needed.
