Dr. B,

Elias has this strange lumpy thing on his ankle. It's not an injury or hive and it's raised. Doesn't itch or hurt. Almost reminds me of a hemangioma under the skin. It just appeared about a month ago and it has since gotten a little wider. Any thoughts?

Here is an update. First doctor doesn't have a clue what it is. Dermatologist doesn't have a clue. Wants to treat like inflammation for 4 weeks and see what happens before biopsying.

Maybe a lipoma? What was it?

So after several visits, the last doctor thinks it's Granuloma annulare. It's still there but now a different shape and look. It doesn't bother him. So we are just watching it.
