Can I ask, could a swollen node in the chest cause chest pain? I have been getting chest pain on the right side when I move and twist my head or move my body in certain positions.

Pain brought on by moving or twisting is a muscle.

It's sounds like it is attached to your skin, which would make it either a boil or like said before ingrown hair. Your fine. If you pull the skin up and you can still feel it then it is likely just a slight skin issue. Hope this helps.

The Dalai Lama,was most surprised by Man.He sacrifices his health to make money. He sacrafices money for his health,he is so anxious about the future so he does not enjoy the present, he does not live in the present or the future,he thinks he will never die, then he dies having never lived.

I was going to say I bet hands down it's an ingrown hair. It will form a hard lump under the skin. Mine even sometimes pop like a pimple. I have had them in my bikini area

I never knew a lump could form under the skin from an ingrown hair. I'm hoping that's what it is!

Hi Brooke,
I'm sure it is just something benign and not serious at all. Like you, I have a lymphoma fear, so every lump, bump and pimple freaks me out to bits.

Hi Sunlover,
It really does seem to be a never-ending battle of the mind at this stage. I've been through the brain tumour fear too, it's no fun.

Turns out, my health anxiety got the best of me again! I asked a second doctor about it and he told me he thought it was an infected sebaceous cyst and gave me an antibiotic to see if it would go down. It is now so small that I can barely even feel it! I was SO sure that I had lymphoma once again!
