What the heck is a "calcified lump"?

So, I went to the doctor today and I guess this has been in the back of my head for the last couple of hours...
He says I might have a "calcified lump" and is referring me to a dermatologist... so, I'm just wondering, what the heck is a calcified lump? A bone that's making a guest appearance against my skin?

Google hasn't really been helpful, so I was just wondering if anyone here knew what it was.

Why didn't you ask your doctor when he told you that you had it? Google is your friend otherwise...

Try this "subepidermal calcified nodule":

There are other calcified nodules but since your doc is sending you to a dermatologist it is likely along these lines.

My doctor's kind of an ass... he'll just tell you what you might have and send you on your way. :lol:

And dude... it sucks to be that guy.

That's the point.

Reminds me of the business card that has the following written on both sides: "if you want to learn how to keep an idiot busy for hours, turn this card over" :cheesygri
