It is important not to ignore lumps and bumps, but to see a doctor who can clarify exactly what they are, and whether or not they require treatment.

In medical terms they are normally referred to as tumour;, these can be either benign or malignant.

Some examples of benign lumps include:

  • Cysts: fluid-filled lumps. The common sebaceous cyst is one example.
  • Nodules: formed in inflammatory conditions such as arthritis, sarcoid and polyarteritis.
  • Lipomas: lumps of fat cells
  • Fibromas and fibroademonas: lumps of fibrous or fibrous and glandular tissue.
  • Haematomas: lumps formed by blood escaping into the tissues – simply a large bruise.
  • Haemangiomas: lumps formed by extra growth of blood vessels.
  • Papilloma: formed from skin or internal membrane cells, for example wart.

If you discover a lump on your body, it is advisable to have it checked by a professional, it is not always possible to know whether a lump is malignant until further tests are carried out.
