cyst, zit, or cancer??
Jul 28, 2010

Hi, I have been poz 18years. in 1999 i had benign lump removed from my testicle. Yesterday I found another.I squeezed it and fluid came out...followed by white pus and small amount of blood. It is quite i need to see doc or just pray its a zit that will heal...I do not want to drop my drawers in front of a doc unless i need to. Can having a previous lump make me more prone to more? I am undetectable and cd4 1000. on atripla.


Response from Dr. Henry

Cysts tend to recur in similar locations-recommend follow-up clinical evaluation. KH
