A lump on my exterior arm area

The lump has gotten flatter and wider, and has a dark dot in the middle. A few days ago it was able to be squeezed slightly, and dark blood would come out, and by doing this it reduced the size and hardness of it.

Dear Kurt, problems of the skin is not easy to deal with. This is something best taken care of by a dermatologist (a doctor who has specialised in skin problems). You unfortunately did not indicate how long the lump has been on the exterior of your arm. You also gave no indication whether it is sensitive to touch or painful. It is not a good idea to squeeze any lump. The mere fact that some dark blood came out of the lump after you squeezing it, could indicate that it may be a furuncle or maybe even a boil. Without any additional information, I would advise that you have it seen to by a health professional. (MCH).
