      Help.  My first post was blocked as spam.  I'm not spamming anyone.  This is real.  Diagnosed in 1992.  Then again in 2004.  Use to be here alot.  Now 11 years later, have lesion on stomach about size of quarter.  It was water filled, now has scab and fibers in the center that are yellow and look like material.  I pulled them out with tweezers.  There was no end to it. 

      Does anyone else have experience with a fiber area in a tumor?

          Sounds like some type of skin infection. I’m no doctor. Have it checked out asap.
