It’s been over a week now since I saw my GP about my armpit lump and swelling. As my doctor suspects something sinister I’m supposed to be being seen under the 2 week cancer rule, but so far I’ve not heard a word about my scan
To rub salt into the wounds, the same day I saw my GP I took a friend through to the city to have a consultation about his bad back. I heard today that he’s already been for an MRI scan, despite nothing sinister being suspected. It’s fucking outrageous.
Today I discovered another lump. I have no idea how I haven’t noticed it before because once you know it’s there it stands out a mile! It’s inside my elbow (on the right as you look at the picture) and on the same arm as the armpit lumps:
There are lymph nodes exactly where the swelling inside my elbow is, so there’s clearly some kind of lymph issue going on. In addition, my armpit is now hurting when it hasn’t before, and my whole arm is feeling heavy and keeps going dead on me.
Until now I’ve just brushed the whole armpit lump thing off, but I have to admit having found this new lump and feeling sooooooo exhausted since Christmas (and actually, well before) I’m more worried now and just want the bloody scan so that I know what’s happening one way or the other.
