    If it bleeds frequently you should show your

    GP.....you could show him a picture if you

    Would rather not show him.

    Has it changed anyway like in shape,size,

    Colour?

      No, it always seems to stay around thr same size and colour though sometimes it feels deflated

    See your GP, connor! IMMEDIATELY! Lumps should NEVER be ignored! Embarrassment is NOTHING! Not when compared to life!

    Don't leave this, connor. My son died because he didn't want to bother anyone. Please seek help.

    See your doctor though it will probably be a cyst or a lipoma. My wife ignored a cyst and it eventually became infected and caused her a lot of trouble.

      You did not get any type of insect bite or sting at any time? When abroad once a strange thing bit me on the chest causing quite a bit of bleeding. Turned out it had burrowed its way in and caused a lump. When I had some limpomas removed they dug this thing out.
