Can someone please answer this question, I have this bump on my back and the dermatologist
says she thinks it's a benign dermatofibroma but I don't think she is 100% sure..

So if you say an untreated tumor kills you in a month.. then I'm good cause I've had this here for a little less than a year.

Benign means it is not cancerous. If you need information, you need to speak to a doctor.

Furthermore, get a second opinion if you think your doctor is wrong. It can't hurt.
