I have had the same symptoms for over a year, fatigue, a lump on my chest near my breast bone and one under the collar bone, feeling feverish at night....and was completely ignored, told it was my nerves (probably fat on my chest) NOW I feel even worse, I can hardly do my job I'm so wiped out, the lump on my chest is bigger and I now have 2 on my neck, I can't eat without feeling over full-even small amounts. I feel like I have to throw up and very feverish at night. And I am losing wieght.
My question is this...I have an apointment with my doctor, but I am afraid she might not listen. My friend has non-hodkin's lymphoma and has some of the same symptoms, but I have mentioned that before and a doctor said I was paranoid, that he often hears that when people have friends who have cancer! I was very upset, so this is a new doctor. Please help me find the right words to convince her I really want a biopsy. Last year I asked them about the lump on my chest and the doctor said it was fat-then with a wave of his hand said-if it was cancer it would grow really big-really fast. Is that true? I will appreciate any feedback.
