It has been awhile since I have been on these boards. Lots of things going on in my life...
But anyway- I have a question for all of you seasoned nurses (who I am sure to know more than some doctor's).
I have had a lump on the upper left-hand side of my back for probably a good year or two. It started out soft & small (yet noticeable to me).
But over the last year, it has grown quite large. It has still remained soft- But it is noticeable to the point that you can actually see the lump sticking out through my shirt!
I have been to 3 different internists. All of them say it is nothing, benign. It is more of a cosmetic problem than anything else.
What in the world do you think this lump is?? When I press on it, I feel slight pain on one side (like it is resting on my spine or something).
How can I get this thing removed? Could it be dangerous?
Please give me some input on this lump, please! I am going to make an appointment with a dermatologist (unless any of you advise otherwise)
Thanks so much!!
