Question: this is the second lump i've found

 3flutedpoints - Wed May 04, 2005 10:07 pm

ok, first of off, i don't know if i should be posting this here ir in the lymphoma section. Here's my situation: I'm a 17 year olf female. wthl a lot of cancer in my family, on both sides. my father had colon cancer and brain cancer, my grandfather had cancer, my cousin has non-hodgkins lymphoma, and this list continues from there. as you can see, cancer is common in my family. back in January, i found a lump in my breast. i went to get an ultrasound done, and they said it is just a cyst, but to come back in 6 months. 2 weeks ago, i found a lump in my neck. it is slightly larger that a kinda flaty, deformed-shaped pea. it is not tender, not it is rock hard. it moves slightly, and i know that if it moves, it is not a need to be alarmed. my mom seems rather concerned about this lump compared with the earlier one in my breast. she wants me to go to see my doctor. i, of couse will. in the meantime though.....any ideas or commenets?
