Well, if you're concerned about it showing up on a medical health insurance bill, you could do a couple of things.
You could talk with your school nurse. I'm a teacher, so believe me, the teachers and the nurses have heard it all and yes, we keep it confidential.
You could also go to a free clinic or the department of health. It might take a few phone calls to track one down, but sometimes they will offer anonymous appointments or low cost appointments.
Additionally, you could call an Ask-A-Nurse hotline which is anonymous or, you could call your regular doctor's office and talk to one of their nurses. You don't have to give your name either.
Its good to hear that you're not sexually active; that will eliminate quite a few things. Hopefully, this is nothing, but should serve as a strong reminder to you in the future to always BE SAFE
And kudos for you for keeping healthy
I hope this helps.
[QUOTE=nate1210;3377973]Well I'm not sexually active so I know it's not herpes or anything like that. The swelling went down and now it's just a red bump again.
I'm still pretty worried about it, I may go to a doctor but like you said, I'd rather not for money/embrassment if it's nothing major. Also, I'm 16 and I would be even more uncomfortable talking about this with my parents.
I don't think it's cancer or anything life threatening (you guys agree), but I want to get rid of it. Any ideas?[/QUOTE]
