For 17 yrs: It is most likely not cancer however, that being said, i would highly suggest you see your doctor for evaluation and possible ultrasound testing. Good luck.

A stable for: 17 year 'bb' is not likely cancer, but you need an expert to feel it, decide on an ultrasound versus clinical watch as you have done by yourslef.
