Question: Small wart like lump on chest

 Mandrew - Fri May 18, 2007 4:20 am

I am a 35 year old female and have a small soft wart like lump.cyst on my chest just above my right breast. Should this be something to worry about?

User avatar Hello,

It would be impossible to give you a useful assessment given the limitations of the internet.

Hear are some points to keep in mind:

Diagnosis of malignant melanoma requires expert knowledge, as early stages may look identical to harmless moles/warts. Signs and symtoms of malignancy include:

    Darkly pigmented skin lesion, sometimes with areas of scanty pigmentation
    Irregularly shaped skin lesion
    Growth or change in shape in a previous mole
    Itching, ulceration or bleeding in a previous mole

Best regards,
