    It has the exact same location and look as like the one in this photo (photo not of me) It looks like a pimple, doesn't feel anything, and oriented horizontally it seems. My brother also has the same thing in the same spot too. It seems very common... what is it, why is it always in that spot, and can I get rid of it?

    Definitely see a doctor, especially if it has changed in size recently.

    Leave it alone, I think you might be in the process of becoming Iron Man.

    dermatologist told me nothing needs to be done, and a cosmetic excision will be $600. Whatever lol.

    It looks like something is going to burst out of it and attack. icon_eek.gif
    $600 is a small price to pay to have that freakish thing removed.

    Or you can learn ventriloquism and make it talk.

    I think it ought to be covered under your provincial health insurance as something non cosmetic; just tell your doctor you keep cutting it shaving, (or you keep slamming it in car doors.)



    actually, If it were in a location were it is visible if you unbutton your shirt, I would have it removed.

    It's a real moodkiller when a guy undoes your shirt, recoils and says "what is that!?"



    But it could also be kinda charming. icon_biggrin.gif
