See a Dermatologist If Have A New "Bump"

I recommend you see a board-certified dermatologist to have the "bump" evaluated and possible biopsied. Generally speaking, any time you develop a new lesion that persists, its a good idea to have it evaluated by a dermatologist.

For a new bump, see a dermatologist

I recommend that you see a board-certified dermatologist for your bump. Your dermatologist will examine the lesion and ask you relevant questions about it. He/she may consider a biopsy if they feel that would be appropriate. Then they can guide you as to the appropriate treatment options.
