Patient

Q: What's the dark lump on my face...had it a while and it's like a big pimple but won't go away. I squeeze it and stuff comes out but it's just as big and still there

Doctor

A:   Thank you for writing to us

Do not squeeze it. See a Doctor and get diagnosed. Once diagnosed, get treated for it. It is possible to be a cyst in which case a surgery will be needed. Then, please get one. Wishing you the best.

Hope this helps you.
