Cancer lump or abdominal muscle?

Hi!
This may sound a bit ridiculous, but I've noticed that I've got a lump on my chest.

I can't help but to get a bit scared, and I really want to know if this can be cancer, or if its just a muscle...

I don't really exercise that much, so why I would get one pumped muscle right there, is beyond me. I'm pretty skinny, overall

I wonder if a cancer lump can act as a muscle?

And a theory about the "lump", is that during a long time I carried all my schoolbooks in a backpack. It weighed sooo freaking much, and i usually carried it on my left shoulder. Would that make my right abdominal muscles get more exercise? Cause it's pretty big, and it looks rather odd...

Thanks in advance!

Re: Cancer lump or abdominal muscle?

Hi there

I wouldnt worry hun, its sounds like its a muscle to me. I have one muscle on the left hand side on my shoulder blade that stands out alot more than the one on my right. I get little exercise too its just the way our bodies are made .

Try not to worry

Andrea

Thank you very much for the reply, Andrea.

It feels much better know, I'll try not to worry about it!
Thx yet again.

Glad you are feeling better .

I always rememeber my GP telling me that our bodys are much like a bunch of grapes, not one segement is the same as the other even though they look the same.

You go enjoy your Saturday hun and try not to worry !

Andrea

Re: Cancer lump or abdominal muscle?

Could be anything from lipoma (absolutely harmless fatty tissue growth) mioma (growth in the muscle tissue) to a simple muscular particularity. Why do you jump directly from "lump" to "cancer"? Ive noticed I had "lumps" in my neck 20 yrs ago. Nothing to worry about.
