The other night I noticed my forearm felt "wierd" where I had my melanoma removed 10 years ago, there was a visable lump about 2-3" long, felt like a knot under the skin the entire area and it hurt to rub my finger over the area, has anyone ever had this? The pain, bump and knot lasted a few days and is gone now.
I know what I should do and that is going to the doctor, but I am afraid they will think I am a complainer....I am having a few other issues right now to rule out uterine cancer and a bad mammo as well, now this.
I was told by a director of a local hospital a few years ago that "people that have or had cancer always cry at every little twinge they feel in their body", those words caused me alot of harm to the point I dont want complain.
Should I have it checked right away or monitor it closely? Any suggestions are appreciated.
