I saw a lump on my upper left abdominal quadrant last night. It is painless and soft. I went to the doctor this morning and she said it could be related to exercise. She asked me to take Ibuprofen for two weeks and come back for a checkup. It did not make much sense to me.
Has anyone has a similar condition? Please help. I do not know how I am going to last 2 weeks. I am freaking out.
I actually myself do not understand a lump occurring due to exercise. Possible causes of a soft lump include cysts, lipomas, inflammation secondary to trauma etc. You may follow your doctor’s advice and follow-up with a review after the specified time or consider a second opinion from another primary care physician and depending on the cause diagnosed it can be managed accordingly.
Hope this is helpful.
I went for an ultrasound and there is a mass that is 2.75 cm long. The radiologist said that it was not conclusive and I should get a CT Scan.
I lost 5 pounds in a month. However, I have been under a lot of stress regarding this situation. I lost my appetite but I force myself to eat. I do not sleep well.
I feel hot at night but I do not drench in sweat.
Other than that I do feel great. I am a runner and I still run 3 miles a day. I do not have swollen lymph nodes on neck, under arm, or groin. No shortness of breath. I do not feel fatigue. I do not have temperature. My body does not itch. I have excellent heart beat, Oxygen level and blood pressure.
I am waiting for the authorization for the CT Scan. I am worried sick. If someone has any information. Please help.
