I found a lump..but it's not in my boob :/ **Update** ***UPDATE 2***
I already made an appointment to see my family doctor next week but I wanted to see if any of you ladies have had this happen…
At least three weeks ago, I took a foot to my collar bone area in my martial arts class. One of my classmate’s toes poked me kind of hard and I wound up with a really minor bruise that barely hurt. A few days later I felt a lump over where the bruise was. The bruise has almost completely healed but the lump is still there and it hasn’t shrunk or changed shape any. It feels to be about the size of a dime. I can’t move it around much so I think it’s attached to something but I’m not entirely sure. It doesn’t hurt at all when I put pressure on it.
My boyfriend (who sometimes thinks he’s a doctor) thinks I’m being paranoid and wasting my time going to the doctor but lumps scare me. I know it’s not in my breast or arm pit but cancer does run in my family so I don’t think there’s any harm in getting checked out especially since I have insurance.
Do you guys think I’m being paranoid and this just has to do with the injury I got??
Well today is the day I hopefully find out what this lump under my shoulder is. It hasn't gotten smaller or changed shape at all over the past few days. It does hurt slightly when you press down on it. My SO felt it for the first time this morning since I first noticed it and I could tell he felt bad for trying to shrug it off the other day. In fact, he suddenly got so worried about me that he started hypervenilating. He's been so stressed out lately over what happened with our roommate and everything else so this really doesn't help. I feel so bad for him.
Well wish me luck ladies. I will update as soon as I get home from the doctor!
So my doc says it's a cyst. All he did was ask me some questions and felt around the lump a bit. He said as long as it doesn't get bigger or become painful, its nothing to worry about and I'll probably keep it for the rest of my life. I'm relieved its nothing major but I'm still going to keep a close eye on it. I've heard of cases where cysts can become cancerous over time. I'm not going to be all panicky about it but I will watch it closely!
