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!
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.
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.
