8mm well circumscribed hyperechoic mass in sternal notch, slightly mobile, firm, growing. Possible lymph node?? Tech thought node, doc thinks lipoma??

8mm well circumscribed hyperechoic mass in sternal notch, slightly mobile, firm, growing. Possible lymph node?? Tech thought node, doc thinks lipoma??

Prob lipoma.: An ultrasound can see the difference between a lymph node and a lipoma. So if the doctor (radiologist) said lipoma, it's a lipoma. Even so, if it keeps growing, it's best to have it biopsied. Some tumors, like liposarcomas, can masquerade as lipomas because they are made of fat. Any lump that continues to grow eventually needs a biopsy. I hope that helps! ...Read more

I have a small spongy mass on my penis mid shaft. It runs circumferential about 1/4'. Pain during sex and radiates to my lower abdomen. Treatable?

Possibly: It's possible that you have a blood clot in the vein on your penis or a varicose (enlarged/dilated) vein on the penis. Treatment option can vary depending on what the diagnosis is so I would encourage you to seek in person evaluation by a physician/urologist.
