What Are Lumps And Bumps On The Skin?

Lumps and bumps on the skin are localised raised areas that vary in size and appearance. They can be a result of several conditions, ranging from benign cysts, warts, or lipomas to potentially serious ailments such as skin cancer. They might be hard or soft, painless or painful, static or growing, and might appear anywhere on the body.

How Do We Remove Lumps & Bumps?

Depending on the nature and location of the lump or bump, doctors may use different removal methods. These might include:

  • Surgical excision
  • Laser therapy
  • Cryotherapy

    Frequently Asked Questions

    Typically, pain during the procedure is minimised through the use of local or general anaesthesia. Post-procedure discomfort can be managed with prescribed medication.

    While most lumps and bumps do not return after complete removal, there is always a chance of recurrence, especially if the lump or bump was not entirely removed or if it is related to a chronic or genetic condition.

    Not all lumps and bumps need to be removed. The decision for removal is usually based on factors such as the type of lump or bump, its size, location, potential for malignancy, and its impact on your quality of life.

    The recovery period varies depending on the removal method, the size and location of the lump or bump, and individual healing rates. It can range from a few days for minor procedures to a few weeks for more extensive ones.

    As with any procedure, there are potential risks, including infection, bleeding, and scarring.
