What to do if a ball appeared under the skin
Many are so busy with work and homethings that sometimes do not pay attention to the fact that the ball appeared under the skin. Of course, the first thought that comes to mind when it is discovered is a bruise after a bruise. And after this ball does not disappear for several days, a person begins to worry.
Usually a hard ball under the skin does not hurt even whenpressure, may be slightly rolled from one place to another and does not interfere at all, but only slightly spoils the aesthetic appearance. If this is so, then you should not worry. Most likely the ball on the arm is an atheroma. In the first stages they are not larger than a pea. Gradually can grow to large sizes. They do not degenerate into cancer, so they do not pose a particular danger, but it is still worthwhile to see a doctor. Especially if the ball under the skin has become large or has begun to change color. The popular name of atheroma is zhirovik. It reflects the essence of education itself - fat tissue. But at the same time it is completely unrelated to excess weight, tk. the main reason is a disturbed metabolism.
If the ball under the skin changes color, thisThe species is called cavernous atheroma. Its color depends on the number of blood vessels located above the formation. A large ball under the skin can transmit blood vessels and prevent blood circulation. Of course, this will have a detrimental effect on nearby tissues. That is why it is worth paying special attention to education of large sizes.
If the ball on the arm is located in the region of the joints,then this is a hygroma. Education is tumor-like, also does not degenerate into cancer and does not require surgical interventions, if not interfere. Hygroma is formed solely from joint fluids, which after injury or increased load flow into the periarticular cavity and overgrown with capsule. Such a ball under the skin is less noticeable than atheroma, but it can cause trouble. Sometimes pulls the tendon (this is the main place of attachment of the capsule), does not hurt, but can burst. Hygromes are dangerous because after they burst (from a heavy load on the joint or a sharp bend of the joint towards the formation), inflammation can occur. In this case, an operation is absolutely necessary. Often, the bursting hygromes return after a while to their original place or next to it. Often, gigrum becomes larger and they accumulate near the original formation.
Not so long ago, as the only method of treatmentgigrom, suggested their crushing by a rigid object. After this, the joint was bandaged for a time with a tight bandage. Now only surgical operations are recommended. They exclude inflammation and, if properly carried out, ensure that the tumor will not re-form.
Self-extrude or burnspecial preparations hard balls under the skin can not be in any case. This can not only lead to inflammation and infection, but also leave a large ugly scar. Surgical operations on hygromas and atheromas with the use of modern devices (for example, laser) help to avoid unpleasant consequences (in the form of inflammation) and leave small scars that are almost invisible. This applies to both large formations and small ones.
During the operation, which is conducted by an experienced doctor,It removes not only the contents of the capsule, but also the capsule itself. This is the right decision, because if you have a ball under your skin, it prevents it from moving freely or spoiling the appearance.
In order that the neoplasms did not appear,you must follow simple rules. When gigroma not to burden the hand, which was injured, protect the joints from injury. With atheroma, go through the examination of the whole body and normalize the metabolism.
