Question: bump next to eyebrow
|CrazyDaisy - Mon May 31, 2004 7:06 pm||
I am a 22 year old female.
:arrow: About two years ago a freckle or something like that showed up on my face next to my eyebrow. Then about Christmas time this past year it got a bump under it about the size of a pea. I figured it was a pimple and squeezed it. A little puss did come out and the bump went away. Then a few weeks later the bump came back and I have had it ever since. it hasn't gotten any bigger and it hasn't gotten any smaller, and I have tried squeezing puss out again, but none comes out. Now, in the past two weeks, another, smaller bump has shown up about a quarter inch above the other bump. I was wondering if it could possibly be some type of cancer and if I should go to my doctor and have them check it out.
Thanks for any help you could possibly give me.

Yes you should go to your doctor and see why it keeps recurring. One tip though is not to squeeze the pus out.
