Not exactly what you asked, but with antibiotic cream it may go away within one or two weeks without having to undergo surgery.

no need to do GP, redundant...just go poly directly if u wanna be referred as subsidised case... GP can also refer u to hospital or skin centre, but that would make u private patient...higher fees

If you have a lump, you should see a surgeon NOT a dermatologist.
Either a general surgeon or a plastic.
Since you are covered, there are plenty of options private and in restructured hospitals.
