Small raised round lumps....

Does anyone know what they are? I have had a few come up in the last few weeks. They are about 3mm in diameter and just under the surface of the skin, slightly pale coloured and perfectly round. I tried to squeeze one and nothing just got more raised, so i dug at it then it almost came out almost encapsulated. I got the tweezers and cut it off with scissors - was totally painfree!, it came out as a round fleshy lump. Then i have done the same to the others, about 5 in all. No puss,or fluid comes out at all. I do work in an office and sit on my butt for about 6 hrs a day. The lumps dont hurt at all. Just wondered what they are?

Jesus, go to the Doctor, don't go cutting bits off to see what happens.

Dear god.
Go to the doctor, step away from the capitals and change the fucking title.

Please don't snip any more bits off your bum, do however consult a medical professional - IME they almost never advise snipping bits off yourself with scissors.

Sounds like molluscum.

How can you see what you are doing? please go to the GP. Or ask the vet in the morning? smile

If it is molloscum, don't squeeze or cut them, as this is how they're spread to other parts of the skin.

grin Sparkling.

Yes, ask the vet!!!

ThePathanKhansAmnesiac Mon 11-Mar-13 20:31:39

Im sorry,grin but this is hilarious!

Wind up anyone? grin

TrinityRhino Mon 11-Mar-13 20:34:41

could be molloscum but you shouldn't need to cut them off

when I very gently..... NOT...... squeezed one of dd2s it popped and out slid a big white hard bit
no cutting required

I don't careeven if this is a wind up - I never knew about molloscum contagiosa until this evening and learning about it is an absolute revelation! I'm pretty sure now that a relative's DC once had them, despite it baffling everyone for ages.

MolotovCocktail Mon 11-Mar-13 21:19:42

My relative squeezed the child's skin papules, and I'm convinced that this is what made the molloscum spread.

Embarrassing body's doc has just said to squeeze it out and keep clean.

MolotovCocktail Mon 11-Mar-13 21:39:42

Yeah, just seen that! Now I'm veeeeeerrrrryyyyyy confused

On planet normal. People ask


Concerned people then suggest what they could be and why you should go to the GP.

Announcing you simply lop of disturbing growths with casual abandon the basis you watched a dude lop something of a gerbil a few times, rises an ENTIRELY different kind of concern you weirdo

take a photo and post it on your profile!!!!!!

I really really want to know how you would go about lopping bits off your own arse now.


Sparklingbrook Mon 11-Mar-13 21:55:59

You would need a periscope I think Bertie.

How are you even able to slice bits off your butt? Do you do yoga?

Monstermashpotato Mon 11-Mar-13 22:01:05

Sounds very much like Molluscum.

OliviaMumsnet (MNHQ) Mon 11-Mar-13 22:01:12

Hello OP we have de-capslocked your thread title and added it to your OP as it was a bit sporn-esque for supper time
Hope your arse is okay! Sounds serious...

Maat Mon 11-Mar-13 22:05:58

The things you have to deal with during a normal working day, Olivia grin

ThePathanKhansAmnesiac Mon 11-Mar-13 22:27:32

Hope your arse is ok grin

Machete grin

You show considerable skill there in cutting and relocating. Any advice for the op?
