There is a tumor like outgrowth in between my breasts. My physician said it is not a cancerous tumor, but even he is not able to find out the reason behind that. Can you please help me?
If you are not comfortable with your physician's response you may wish to seek a second opinion. You may want to visit a dermatologist. There are many benign growths on the skin and unfortunately we do not know what causes many of them. However, a skin biopsy may be needed (or not) depending on the dermatologsist's diagnosis.
