I have a big knot the size of a golf ball on my left cheek. Been there for 3 years. Are there lymph nodes in the cheek?

There are: So called buccal node but they are rarely ever that prominent. Is this "golf ball" right in the middle of the cheek or back by your ear? Nonetheless, you need to have this evaluated as it's not normal for any lymph node to be the size of a golf ball. ...Read more

After sports the outside of my left ankle gets very swollen and makes a big ball that is squishy and seems like there is fluid.Some pain.What is this?

SPRAIN?: Since you participate in sports, could someone have hit it or kicked it? Sometimes during the activity, you can get injured but really don't notice it until later. Is it a contact sport like football or soccer? If it's not improving, you should see a podiatrist or foot/ankle/sports medicine orthopedist. Sincerely, Dr. Latva ...Read more

It seems that I have a big fatty lump on my left rib cage. I want to say its just under the size of a tennis ball, and more noticeable when I lay down

Get it checked : You should definitely get this examined by your primary care provider within the next week or two. While this is probably a benign fatty tumor, it sounds quite large and should be checked. Hope this helps! ...Read more

A : A lump that goes up and down is size is nearly always a ganglion cyst. The reason for the change is size is a change in the amount of fluid in the cyst. This is often related to activities that "pump" fluid into the cyst from the joint or tendon sheath where it starts. Ganglion cysts are completely benign and do not damage other tissues. However, while many of them do not cause symptoms, some can be quite painful. When they are not painful, they do not require any treatment. However, a painful cyst can be removed. Some people will try to aspirate (withdraw fluid), but cysts come back rapidly after this treatment. I aspirate them infrequently, but will do it when there is a reason not to do surgery. However, I do not recommend doing it on the palm side of the wrist, where there is an artery next to (or sometimes on top of) the cyst. There are other benign lumps that occur in the hand and wrist, but they do not go down in size. Common ones are giant cell tumors of the tendon sheath, vascular nodules, lipomas, and neuromas. Cancerous lumps in the hand are very rare, but can occur. The ones I have seen were obvious. Any lump that is causing symptoms or is increasing in size should be evaluated. A good hand surgeon can determine possible causes and remove it. If there is any question about the nature of the lump, it should be removed for a tissue diagnosis. ...Read more
