8months ago when i was pregnant 2 radiologist saw my left breast lump & both told me is nothing bad is just a lump i still have it don't hurt same size?
Are you sure: they were radiologists? A radiologist may examine the breast, but always in conjunction with an imaging study such as mammography or ultrasound. Calling something a "lump" is not a diagnosis, it is a physical finding that needs further evaluation to determine what is causing it. Assuming it is still there, you should probably go back to your clinician for an exam. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

I had an tooth extracted 5 months ago. I noticed a lump on my jaw in that area. Hurts only when i poke at it. Semi round and hard? Xray showed nothin?
Need exam & Xray: Can't tell for sure, but could be an infection, a cyst or a spicule of bone that's finally worked itself out--all would be tender to touch. In rare cases ( usually older), it could be a form of tumor--not likely at your age. Best to get it checked out. ...Read moreSee 3 more doctor answers

Yearly (begin @ 40): Mammograms remain our best test to screen for breast cancer. Most us experts advise starting at 40 (or 10 yrs younger than a close family member who had breast ca). The lump you describe sounds classic for fibrocystic changes: "lumpy-bumpy" breast tissue that is sensitive to hormonal changes. If you find a new lump, it is always best to see your gyne or primary care dr. To be extra-cautious. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

Lipoma: if you have a lump under the skin it might be a lipoma. This is a fatty mass or tumor. If it is small and mobile then leave alone. If it grows or become painful, not mobile then see your doctor again. This could also be a lymph node. If you had a recent cut near that area it could be from inflammation. Hope this helps. ...Read more

A breast lump on right side came suddenly e r said a cyst been 2 weeks since period and still here no pain one side hard weird shaped when will it go?
Get checked: While it is likely a cyst or benign change associated with your monthly cycles, rarely at your age other changes can occur that need attention like infections or benign tumors or rarely cancer. Breast cancer in a 22yo without a strong family history is rare but if this is a painless lump that enlarges or persists then you should be examined. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

I was just told my MRI showed inflammation of the lump i found in my armpit. And now I have to see a surgeon. What could it be? The lump was just found 2 weeks ago and wasnt defined enough on ultrasound so MRI was ordered
A : A lump in the armpit can be many different things including cyst, lipoma (fatty tumor), or enlarged lymph node. Inflammation of a lymph node is non specific but may be due to infection. Other possibilities include malignant and benign tumors including lymphoma, metastasis (tumor spread from other primary neoplasm), sarcoma, and others. A biopsy is usually advised and can be done by a surgeon or by a radiologist using a small needle guided by ultrasound. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
I had 2 swollen nodes in groin area after I strained my groin and was worried it was from cancer but the nodes have gone down now. Is that good sign?
It is always a good: sign that something that was previously inflamed and swollen has improved spontaneously, aka without active treatment. However "straining" your groin would not be a usual cause for swollen lymph nodes-- the swelling could have been due to inflamed muscle fibers or inguinal ligaments... Monitor the situation closely but if things have improved, I would not be too worried. Thanks. ...Read more

I had a small lump under skin on lower back. Has always been the same. Today it was bigger and bruised and somewhat sensitive which it hasnt been b4.?
Ruptured cyst?: Your description makes me think this might be a cyst which ruptured and is becoming inflamed as a result. If it worsens, gets very large, or painful, it may need to be opened. Warm compresses can help bring it to a head and resolve it faster. Squeezing isn't a good idea. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
