Soft Tumor under right breast at rib cage

I recently had a very large tumor removed from my abdomin area it was the size of a grapefruit and had tenticals that grew over my vital oragans. My stomach seems to be blooting again and I now have a soft mass under my right breast and the top of my rib cage growing very guickly 12mmx7mm . It appeared over a two week time period and of course is still growning. My question is I am allergic to iodine, however the only way they found just a small part of the last tumor was because I used the iodine in the first CT. SCAN. so what do I do , My hands hurt to type my feet are swelling and its hard to walk and now have to take pain killers. I know they have to remove the mass of what ever it is but is this a common thing. Do they just keep reproducing themselves. The other thing is Doctors keep telling me this is out of there leage and dont want to help. Where do I go. Yes I know everyone reading this is sitting there saying well do this or do that. So tell me because no one is listening and I need help. Thanks. I also Have BAM Basilar artery Migraines. But I am begining to wonder if its something else.

This discussion is related to Lump on ribcage.

It is very scary isnt it when you get things and you dont know what is going on I wish they would be clearer when they explain,you are going through a lot go back and demand some answers, make notes of things to ask the Docs if they say its out of their league ask to see a Specialist, someone has to listen if you make enough noise. Have you a Family member or Husband can go with you to boost your self confidence.Hope you get answers soon, let us know.

It was nice of you to responed. When I wrote this I thought I was in ask the Doctor but I guess the universe wanted me to write here. I have gone to a lot of specialists. In fact I have a appt tomorrow with another one. Last time they put me in a hospital for five days and almost killed me because they dont listen./!!!!! I had someone with me but for some reason they think because I dont have a medical degree I am to stupid to know what Im talking about. I dont give up. Oh i forgot to meantion that Im deaf. Makes it hard on the they get nervous poor  doctors, although I speak fine and read there lips. Do you ever get to a place were your just tired. Or better yet want to walk into a hospital and just scream someone listen to me. Scary doesnt begin to tell you what I have gone through now I have to fight again . They honestly told my husband to just put me in a pain clinic and let me die. Honest to Chocolate" Thanks for caring enough to write a stranger back. J
