I have bump on my bicep attached to the bone. Could this be cancer?

Highly unlikely: There is no relationship between trauma and cancer. However, a lot of times, trauma will bring attention to a pre existing cancer condition. If there are no symptoms or new nodule around that area one does not need to worry. But if there are persistent symptoms and new abnormality, then you need to seek medical advice. ...Read more

Tiny (1 cm) painless bump, barely raised, on center of patella. Moves slightly under skin, is not tender. Does bone cancer present this way? Worried

Tiny (1 cm) painless bump, barely raised, on center of patella.  Moves slightly under skin, is not tender. Does bone cancer present this way? Worried

Not likely: Bone sarcomas or metastatic lesions rarely present in this fashion. A painless bump that moves most likely is not cancer. Especially in the patella, this would be extremely unusual to get cancer there, I don't think you have to be worried about a lesion in front of your patella. ...Read more

What to do if i found a tiny bumb on my collar bone could it be cancer?

What to do if i found a tiny bumb on my collar bone could it be cancer?

Very unlikely, check: Many of us have various lumps and bumps that have been present for a long time and we're not aware of them, until something happens to bring our attention there -- someone else points it out, you bruise the area, you have pain. We always assume it's NEW, but may have been there a long time. Bumps on the collarbone may be extra bone, muscle, scar, or a lump in the fat or skin. See a Dr. for exam ...Read more

Would a thryoid cancer bump be attached to the wind pipe?

Would a thryoid cancer bump be attached to the wind pipe?

Thyroid cancer: The thyroid is a butterfly shaped gland that sits in the low middle part of your neck. The gland is deep to the strap muscles and sits right on the trachea itself. In fact, there is a very vascular portion of the thyroid that holds it closely to the trachea called Berry's ligament. Cancers of the thyroid gland can not only attach to the trachea, but sometimes that can also invade into it-rare. ...Read more

What are the chances of a small bump attached to my wind being thyroid cancer?

Depends on where: Very few bumps on your neck end up being thyroid cancer and far more are enlarged lymph nodes. But it really depends on exactly where in the neck this bump is located and a doctor can examine it and tell you if the bump is located within the thyroid gland and if there is any reason to be concerned ...Read more
