My daughter has a small (4mm) lump n her neck. It started as what I thought was a white head (spot), but over time it has grown. It has always been white, but over the past week has become red/pink, with red around. I have taken her to the doctors and he seems to think it is a skin coloured mole. I'm not convinced, so just wondered if anyone had any idea? I will attach a photograph (hopefully!) Thanks

Small neck bump
It is difficult to make a diagnosis from the photo but it looks as if your daughter's lump may be a sebaceous cyst that is now inflamed or infected. Please find a board certified dermatologist in your area for diagnosis and treatment. Let me know how she is.
