    Re: Vaginal lump please help

    Thanks unicorn. I think it might be too far inside to be the hymen, and Iíve never had a vaginal birth, only C-Sections!
    Iím hoping itís just some bizarre anatomy, but I know I need to find out for sure!

    Re: Vaginal lump please help

    Ok...Iíve made an impulse decision. A rare GP appointment became available for today with a doctor I really like (but who never has availability!) so Iím gonna go and get this lump checked out!

    If Iíd chosen to go to an STI clinic, Iíd have had to wait til my kids were back at school, then my period happens to be due that same week...so Iíd have had to wait til the 3rd week in January AND potentially be examined by ex colleagues!

    So yeah...wish me luck! My stomach is doing flips!!!

    Re: Vaginal lump please help

    The GP said she could only see skin tags. Iím not 100% sure that she saw the lump, as she sounded a bit confused in her tone. I kept describing it to her as a kidney bean, and after a while she said ďyes, there is one like that.Ē 🤷*♀️
    She didnít feel it, she just accepted my description of it as being soft, and told me that the first rule of med school is ďscary things are hard, not softĒ.
    So yeah...to me, it doesnít fit the criteria of a skin tag because it isnít hanging by a stalk, itís literally growing downwards along its whole length, and from everything Iíve found from my frantic research, skin tags donít grow internally!

    Collarbone lump

    Please can someone talk me down.
    Iíve been to my GP twice in the past month for different reasons and was made to feel like a nuisance, so I really donít want to go again, but this is driving me insane!

    My left collarbone, towards the sternum where the bone gets fatter...I have a lump on the top of it. Like, actually ON the bone. Not behind it or under it.

    Iíve been trying to make sense of it for two weeks now. It feels like a boney ridge along the top of the bone, pointing outwards, with a soft, movable, round ball at the end of it. Itís hard to explain, and I just cannot figure out what it could be, and itís causing me to get obsessed.

    If it were just the round ball, Iíd think lymph node (itís approx 7mm) but the boney ridge that seems to be attached to it, well...I just donít know!! Normal anatomy?

    Is 7mm worrying for a collarbone node? I know the rules on these ones are slightly different!

    Anyway...please can anyone calm me down with experiences of collarbone lumps/lymph nodes that ended up being benign?

    Re: Collarbone lump

    You're just circling around to a previous worry Poke and prod and find some normal bodily anatomy to obsess over. Take a look at some of the replies there.

    Probably just part of your body to be honest. Seek and you will find

    Lump on collarbone

    My anxiety is fully heightened right now due to a family member dying in hospital from cancer because she chose to ignore her symptoms.

    Iíve been doing the same lately...blaming everything on my HA.

    Guys...how urgent is it to get a collarbone lump checked?
    Iíve got a pea sized lump on my collarbone that Iíve been aware of for a month. Itís smaller than 1cm (but only just) and is quite mobile. I donít know for sure if itís a lymph node because it feels like it is wrapped in fatty tissue.
    Iíve booked an appointment with my GP for 12th feb, hoping it might go away by then.
    Am I being stupid or sensible here? I cannot tell anymore!

    Any medical expert will advise that you get any new lump/bump checked out - its worrisome for you I know but it sounds like a node to me (I am no expert so only going by what you have described) - get it checked for piece of mind.

    One piece of advice though - I had a lump behind my ear and I fiddled so much with it that it increased in size ten fold - so dont prode or poke
