hard lump sternloclavical joint
« on: April 23, 2014, 08:26:53 PM »
I have had this hard lump on my left sternloclavical joint. I don't know what's making me freak out so bad about it now as I have had it for 9 years and it haven't gotten bigger. I also had an ultrasound 9 years ago and it said it was fluid filled . Now I can't stop touching it or trying to squish it I am obsessed thinking its cancer and now I'm going to die! The lump is a bit bigger then a pea and you can't see it you can just feel it. Do you think it's possibly cancer?

If you've had it for nine years and it hasn't grown or caused any symptoms, I really doubt it's cancer... And if there was any chance of it becoming cancer later on, I'm pretty sure the doctors would have scheduled some follow-up appointments to keep an eye on it.

You've had it 9 years. Use logic here... Obviously if it was cancer you would be dead already or at least incredibly symptomatic. I've had a neck lump smack in the middle of the left side if my neck since I was at least 11, so I've had it over 12 years. It's about Lima bean size. One if the oddities of me, but NOT cancer. Yes it's been checked many a time... In fact that's one if the things that turned me hypochondriac. I remember my mom taking me to the doc for the lump and it scared me a bit.
