2 Bumps

Okay this is GROSS you have been warned! adult content

My mom use to have this giant bump on her back for as long as I could remember she said it was an old zit she had when she was a TEEN!?!. Well one day she said it was getting itchy and ozing, then I popped it was disgusting. It was like a huge zit that had like that hard thing that comes out when you poop a zit on a lot of them. The goo that came out was bloody and purple. And left a dent in her back still to this day. Mind you she was about 50 when this happend and it was golf ball sized bump. So what the hell was it???

    NASTY! Sorry... that was my first response.

    My real guess is either a boil or a cyst?

  • It may have started out as a zit and over the years turned into a sebaceous cyst. I've had one and you're right, it was very gross! I went to a doc, took antibiotics, and had it surgically removed. Sounds like your mom's was bigger than mine, and she should definitely have it checked by a doc. There's a chance of spreading the infection to her bloodstream which is a serious health risk. :~)

  • sounds like a cyst to me. when they are removed there is a hard "marble" that comes out & pus too...and a scar afterwards.
    after having a kid. not much is too gross. lol.
