at least a month ago, if not more, a white bump appeared on my face. I swear it isn't a zit..at least not one I've ever experienced. It won't go away and it doesn't change at all. It's like a white raised mole..or something. It's driving me crazy! It won't go away...

All unusual skin issues should be checked by a doctor, especially with skin as fair as yours.

Like a dermatologist? Ugh. I don't have insuranCe but I don't spend a lot of time in the sun at all..ugh this just sucks. I keep hoping it'll disappear as fast as it appeared but so far..nope. and it is obvious and annoying. I'll have to see what it'd cost to go...

Looks like a flesh colored mole. Get it checked out by a dermatologist

Get it looked at by a doctor.   

Most likely it's a sebacous cyst.   But it COULD be a lot of other things and in any case, even if it's just a sebacous cyst it needs to be removed or it'll just keep coming back and they can get infected, make a big hole, and lead to quite a big scar.  

So EVEN IF it's a sebacous cyst it has to be dealt with by a doctor and he or she can determine if it's anything more serious as well.

I'm not trying to be alarmist, but skin cancer is nothing to ignore. Better to spend a little too much now and be safe than to wait too long, you know? I found this on several websites:

A helpful way to remember what to look for is to use the ABCDE method.

  • A – asymmetry
  • B – border irregularity
  • C – colour change
  • D – diameter
  • E – elevated (raised) or enlarged
