Growth on Face Above Jaw Line

Patient : My boyfriend has a growth on his face please see picture, thank you
Doctor :   The growth suggest a keloid scar, an infectious or non infectious cyst or a cancerous growth. The red "angry" look of t he lesion suggest an aggressively growing mass with the possibility of growth occurring deeper than the surface skin. It should be removed and sent for pathology as soon as possible.  A plastic surgeon would be the best to consult for a growth in this part of the body. Good Luck   .
