There are a number of conditions that cause lumps and bumps to appear on the face, neck as well as the scalp. The following are very common:

Skin cysts

Epidermoid cysts

Folliculitis

Keratoacanthoma

Pilar cyst

Lipomas

Neurofibromas

Skin cancers appearing as lumps and bumps

Often it is difficult to ascertain the exact nature of the lesion, hence removal and analysis is often recommended.

Treatment Options

Depending on the condition, treatment options include lasers, liquid nitrogen spray, antibiotics and surgical removal.

Consequences of Treatment

These include the exact nature and the modality of treatment that is used. The commonest consequence can be a scar. Most scars, when the operation is carried out appropriately, heal well. However, they can be troublesome. It is therefore best to see an experienced facial plastic surgeon for an opinion and surgical removal, even when the lesion is small.

The lesion may come back at any time necessitating further treatment.
