I usually hang out at the kidney cancer site as I had kidney cancer in 2010 and had my left kidney and adrenal gland removed. I just had a follow up ct scan on Tuesday and Wednesday morning I found a marble sized lump in my right armpit. It is hard and you can move the skin over it. It doesn't really hurt unless I push on it, even then its not really painful (feels like an old bruise).
Usually if the kidney cancer mets it's to lymph nodes closer to the kidney, the lungs, brain or bone which is why I am here. I will have my results and follow up appt and labs on Wednesday with my oncologist. I haven't told anyone about this yet. I hate being paranoid over every little thing I find but I guess that's part of the nature of having had cancer. Any suggestions?
