Follow with your doctor as soon as you can. Things that can cause pains in chest and ribcage include heartburn, pneumonia, gallbladder problems, liver disease, kidney problems, heart attacks, or blood clots. ...Read more

Whats the difference between a lipoma, infected lymph node, and cyst? I have a bump on my neck (left back side) and doc says its one of those 3.

A lipoma is usually not inflamed and is soft to touch and often slides around when pushed or manipulated. A cyst is fro a hair follicle and when they rupture are often inflamed and tender. A biopsy may be needed to find out ...Read more

If lumps occur after 19 year and no other symptoms of neurofibromatosis found in early age .Which i seen in wikipidia? But it look like lipoma is it?

Could be: Unfortunately, without a physical exam it is almost impossible to tell what a "lump" is. However, the good news is that by your history, it does not sound like you have new lesions related to your neurofibromatosis. The most common "lumps" found under the skin if they are soft and mushy are cysts and lipomas. ...Read more

Lymph nodes, lipomas: A lipoma is in the skin, and looks like a bulge in the skin itself. An enlarged lymph node is usually under the skin and its possible to move the surface of the skin separate from the underlying lymph node. Benign lymph nodes can be either softer or a bit more firm than a lipoma, If a lymph node is very hard or unyielding, or tethered under the skin, be sure to get it checked out. ...Read more
