Family history: no one else has had this
Current medications: doctor has written a letter to hospital but nothing has been done.

I am no expert by any means but I wouldn't have thought that a cancerous growth would have any kind of head to it.
Also, I remember reading at work on a poster that if a growth is quite symetrical then it is probably benign.
You should just get it checked anyway - especially if getting bigger. It could just be a cyst of muscle tear and it would put ure mind at rest.
Hope that's a little help.
