purplish growth under my skin
Nov 27, 2001

A couple of weeks ago I noticed a small, perfectly round, purplish growth. It is directly under my skin just above my sphincter. It moves a bit but is painless and solitary. Any ideas what this could be? Thanks.

Response from Dr. Feinberg

I can't tell from your description-- you really need a doctor to look at this.
