Please help me! I have this red bump on my chest that has been there as long as I can remember. 3-5 years now? It's raised and red. It does not ooze anything nor has it ever bled. I don't even remember it happening. I think it was a pimple I kept picking at. It's smooth and creates no pain or discomfort, except sometimes when my clothes rubs against it the wrong way it irritates it. It's a pretty small bump. I tried looking up what it could be but all that pops up is skin cancer. Which I'm terrified of. Could that be it? I don't really meet any of the symptoms of cancer though. When I told a dermatologist about what it was she said it just looked like a whole bunch of tissue cause I kept picking at it over and over again. SOMEONE PLEASE HELP!!

I have the same thing!
This is the only thing I've read that is anything similar to what I have. I have exactly what you are describing. It's a smal roundish red raised lump on the upper center part of my chest. Someone told me breast cancer wouldn't be located there. I have no idea what it is...but it just showed up one day about a year ago.

Has yours changed in size at all?! mine has stayed the same for years now. do you have a picture of it? is that allowed to be posted on this website? and yes, you can rule breast cancer out i'm POSITIVE that is not what it is.

CHERRY ANGIOMA?
i think i have the same thing. CHERRY ANGIOMA. it's a cluster of blood vessels or something like that. only in rare cases when they're numerous do they suggest liver damage and has nothing to do with cancer, thank god. hope that helps?

Hi, I have the exact same thing, it has been here about a month and I also stuck a needle through it, felt no pain, it bled a lot, but didn't get any smaller or go away. Did you ever find out what it was?? I can't seem to find this same description anywhere online.

Re: (new lumps, bumps or changes in old ones)
Go to your doctor! Only a medical professional can tell you for sure whether or not you have cause for concern.
I have had this happen a few times the last couple of years and luckily both came back non cancerous.
Melanoma should be taken very seriously.

I have the exact same thing. I went to the doctor and he told me it was a small cyst that had hardened and became scar tissue. They can be cut off but the chest is a very scarring area so cutting it off could make it worse. I am having mine cut off in febuary

Small blister like bump that appeared out of nowhere
I too just developed this small blister like spot on my chest just a few days ago. I thought it would go away but today it appears a little redder and I'm beginning to wonder what it could be. I am awaiting my insurance card so I can visit a dermatologist. A few days ago I was so exhausted I practically slept all day.... That's so not like me and I awoke to find this spot. Wondering if there is a connection. I haven't felt that tired since

I had what looked like a zit near my collar bone and stupid me kept picking at it. In about a week after the scab went away a bump bout the size of a small pea formed, its hard but does not really hurt. Its been there for about a year and has not changed size. It is though exteamly nervewrecking. What can it be? please just say its scar tissue from picking at it.

Cherry Angioma
Cherry Angioma and Your Skin

A cherry angioma is a smooth, cherry-red bump on the skin.

Although cherry angiomas usually appear on the trunk of the body, they can occur nearly anywhere. The cause of cherry angiomas is not known and the growths usually appear on people over the age of 40.

What Are the Symptoms of Cherry Angiomas?

Cherry angiomas are small, bright red growths that are smooth. The size of the growths can vary from the size of a pinhead to about a quarter inch in diameter.

How Is a Cherry Angioma Treated?

In most cases, cherry angiomas do not require treatment. If they are cosmetically unappealing or are subject to bleeding, angiomas may be removed by lasers or electrocautery -- the process of burning or destroying tissue by use of a small probe with an electric current running through it. Removal may cause scarring.
