granuloma

Posted by Amy S on 10/02/02 at 16:55 (096744)

My daughter has a lump on the top of her right foot. The pediatrician says she has granuloma. He says that there is nothing to worry about. It doesn't hurt at all and he says it is just cosmetic? I'd like more information please.

Is the lump under the skin or above the skin? If it is below the skin it sounds more like a lipoma or ganglion. Regardless, you may want to get another opinion since no 'lumps' are normal. There are many 'lumps' such as ganglions or lipomas, etc., that are completely benign, but it is always wise to have it checked out.
