Lumps and Bumps Condition

When should I be concerned about lumps and bumps on my skin?

Lumps and bumps on the skin are a common occurrence. However, one should seek medical attention if the lump or bump is painful, increasing in size, changing in colour or starting to produce fluids.

If I have a lump on my skin that is producing pus, should I squeeze it further?

Please do not squeeze such lumps further as it might introduce or further worsen existing infection. Please seek medical attention should the lump on the skin start producing fluid.

What are the options of treatment for lumps and bumps?

Not all lumps and bumps need treatment or surgical removal. Medical treatment with oral medications or creams can help. Surgery is reserved for lumps and bumps that are troublesome, worrisome or not responding to medical treatment.
