Dutch generally speak AMAZING English. Seriously. Better than most Brits I know aha!

Yeah, my dad does the 'You're ill' part without fully explaining so I know what you mean!

I've had a neck lump for over 10 years. It was to be removed, I'd seen the surgeon, and next thing I knew my appt. Was cancelled, he was no longer with the hospital. I seem to remember at the wrong time to make another appt. The lump is moveable which I was told was a good sign. These can start out as a plugged follicle and migrate inward.

Hey saddlebag. Been through this with vet... I mean doc! I also asked, as it is the side of my injured shoulder, could it be a knot or growth on the muscle from that? Unlikely.

Love it when docs are positive!

Had my mope, looked at some more websites (promise not to freak myself out!) and all in all seem fairly satisfied that I am either growing another head or nipple. We will see. Next Friday I will 99% sure be laughing at this when I get my results and wonder what all the fuss was about!

Lol Neck Nipple I'm sure it's nothing!!

Dealing with Doctors sure is... fun??

I've decided to totally circumvent the medical system and I'm going to try naturopathic and dietary treatments to get my fun issues resolved. Having a relapse currently (stress related I think) so hopefully the fun needly/pokey lady has some ideas beyond "take this and call me in 6 months". Like wth. Thanks Dr man.

I swear its the year of weird medical issues...

I agree! I am SO glad I don't pay for medical bills!

Neck nipple.. I am warning you young lady ha!

I have given up on treatments full stop. If they don't find it, I will skewer it out and hand it over myself?! Gross

So I had my blood test on Thursday! And this is what they left me with. Unimpressed is an understatement. Going back tomorrow to complain.

ETA unfortunately it would appear I can't upload from my iPad any more :/

malignant tumors can be encapsulated in fat . There are some newer test that look for Markers in the blood . If you are still concerned have a biopsy done. I wish you the best of health and that your lump is just a lump.

UPDATE:

So, went to Docs Tuesday to put in a complaint about the state of my arm 'Oh sorry I think I must have popped the vein' Fools.

Anyways, nurse said results will be in Tue/Wed latest and if there is anything worrying will phone.

Doc app this morning.. results aren't back. So went from being fine to freaking.

Called hosp.. all is clear. So she felt for the lump and found another one. I have no high white blood cell count, so no infection etc.

If they are still there in a month going to go to the German net and have them removed
