About six months ago I stopped getting my period which wasn't completely abnormal until I didn't have it for the next two months. I am not sexually active and don't think I will be for at least another twelve years. At the two month period I just spotted and that was it. I didn't have my period for the next three months. Yet that's not what worried me completely. During the first month of this I had stomach aches and an almost diareahh sensation and I had a terrible pain in my lower right side of my abdomen. My mom took me to emergency thinking it was my appendix. It was not. The day after was a saturday and my grandma was rubbing my back because it hurt. My lower rib cage on my right side felt bruised. That was the day we found a lump right underneath my ribcage. It was maybe a centimeter in diameter but it felt big under my touch and it hurt when I touched it. The next day we went to prompt care and the doctor said she wasn't sure but thought it was a benign lipoma. We went home and I was still in pain. That week in school I had a scare in one of my classes because my chest felt tight out of nowhere and I felt my heart beat faster. Then it went away and later that same day my arms felt tingly and I felt a painful lump on the right side of my knee. It eventually went away within ten minutes. Then the same week my mom took me to the emergency because my left arm went tingly and numb and I felt my chest tighten extremely. I did not have a heart attack like we thought. I was apparently fine. I went home. The next three months my lump still hurt. Not only that but I was starting to get this really painful sensation right above the lump in the middle of my right rib cage. It comes and goes and can be really painful to where I can't move to it just hurts sharply when I inhale. A few days ago I got this painful diarreah out of nowhere and it was a bloody stool for a whole day straight. It worries me because to me it sounds like some symptoms of lymphoma and I think my lump has gotten bigger.
-Also recently my doctor felt it and said it was a lot deeper than a normal benign lipoma. (my lump)
