  1. It scares me that you suggest I see a Dr.
  2. It is definitely moveable. Like I said, most of the time when I touch it it rolls away and I can't feel it anymore. Very rubbery and squishy in a way. I keep telling myself that's been 7 months since I found it and that if it was serious, the tenderness wouldn't go away to the point that I forget about it for months at a time and that I would probably be really sick right now.
  3. Bumping this up because I am freaking right now. It hasn't really hurt the past two days but sometimes I do feel a little soreness that last a second or two. My husband has felt there for me and swears he never feels anything. Weird thing is, if I forget about it, it usually stays silent. If I think about it, it creeps up. If I feel it and rub there, it goes away (it being the tenderness). And I am not sure if I am feeling pain or my mind is making sure I know that its there.
  4. I am terrified to even post here because I know this isn't good. 7 months ago, out of the blue, I rubbed my chest. I felt a rubbery little node-like thing. Kind of achy but nothing painful. I freaked for a little bit, then literally forgot about it. About 2 months later, it felt achy so I rubbed it. Freaked for a couple of days then forgot about it. Last week, again, freaked out of the blue about it, rubbed it a lot and now its tender again. It's small and moves. In fact if I rub it, it disappears into my chest. It is right below my collar bone. It hasn't grown in the 7 months I found it. Like I said, for the most part I don't even think about it. If I don't think about it then I don't feel it. If I am freaking out, then it aches. Once it stops aching, then I no longer think about it. I am TERRIFIED right now. I have A LOT of stress happening as well. Not to mention this is HA freak out #3 just this year. One rolls right into the next. I am so scared I almost don't even want to read your replies because I am 100% sure this is going to kill me.
  5. I do not have a GP. I know. I need one.
  6. Here we are 3 weeks since I posted this and today it came back. I used a heating pad on my ear/neck/side of face Thursday night and it went away completely. Now there is a dull ache again on that side. It makes my teeth on that side ache. If heat helps and it goes away completely for 3-4 days, it isn't cancer right?? Also I discovered a very small white spot on my face and now I think I have skin cancer, too. I am so anxious.
  7. Hello guys! Thank you for your replies. Yesterday was actually really good. I felt next to nothing all day. Took Naproxen when I got up like I had been doing (but woke up without pain) and felt good all day. I even forgot about it in the afternoon-evening. This morning I woke up fine. My head KIND OF hurts....more like a really dull ache that moves a little. Ears to eye to neck to temple. Nothing like it was before. I am not massaging my face for relief. I assume tumor pain doesn't come and go??? Or move??
  8. Out of the blue on Friday I got a really bad headache. I felt it in my neck, right side of my head, teeth, ear, and shoulders. Nothing really seemed to knock it out. I had it through the weekend. Sunday it was just a small ache, hardly noticed it. But since yesterday it is killing me. Massaging certain areas helps. Naproxen + caffeine help. Last night I had to lay in bed with a ice pack bc I was so desperate. I had a TMJ flair up (first one) two years ago but it was more ear and jaw pain. Went away in about 2 weeks. From what I have read, this could be that again. But I am thinking brain tumor. I have NEVER had a headache last like this. Sometimes I feel it on the other side, but it is mostly the right side...same side that was giving me issues a couple of years back. It does go away when sleeping, when massaging jaw/head, and with enough Motrin or Advil.
  9. I haven’t had it since early this afternoon but still...I’m constantly checking to see if it’s back. I hate feeling like this. I hate feeling so depressed, doomed and hopeless. I want to stick my head in the sand and scream. I feel so doomed. Thank you for talking to me. I just wish I didn’t feel so sad.
  10. But still. It could be different this time.
  11. Last time I talked my dr about this he assured me it happens and that it was hormonal. He even said 9/10 calls the nurse gets everyday are for the same thing. But still. I’m not spotting anymore (as of earlier this afternoon) but I just know it’s going to come back.
  12. I am not on BC but last time I had this, my dr suggested it. I passed bc I don’t do well on BC. It cranks my anxiety up. I am petrified. Even though I know this is common, I am so scared. I just know I’m dying. Im even crampy now. I want to crawl into a hole and never come out. This is the beginning of the end and I just know it.
  13. TYPICALLY nothing to worry about. 😟
  14. I am 39 years old (female) and as of this morning, I am having some mid-cycle bleeding. I am 4 days post-period (finished up this past weekend). Period was super light, though. I have been under an extreme amount of stress the last 2 weeks. Young son was in the hospital for the last 1.5 weeks so I was stressed out a ton. Its not a lot of blood but its scaring me. Actually, its really freaking me out. I have had this before but its been a few years. My gyno then said it was normal. I even went to the ER back then bc I was so scared. Haven't had it since. Ovarian cancer, right???????? I just know this is the moment I have been afraid of all of these years.
  15. For the past few weeks I’ve had these painful sore spots. They “move” from one spot to the next and really sore when I rub them. I have them: under each arm on one side back calf next to a boob sternum My dad had metastatic lung cancer that lit a PET scan up like a Christmas tree. A coworker has cancer that spread as well. Ive had sore spots before but not like this. Anyone else?? I’ve been stressed x’s 3,000,000,000 the past few months. This has kept me up at night bc I’m terrified. I can’t move past this.
