Is it likely to be some sort of swelling due to being mucked about with?

swooosh Tue 25-Mar-14 20:33:42

What sort of lump? A large swelling?

KatyMac Tue 25-Mar-14 20:42:45

A wibbly pea (a smallish pea)

KatyMac Tue 25-Mar-14 21:23:22

I wonder if it's a salivary gland?

I had a blocked saliva duct under my tongue. Swelled up like a boil. Is it like that?

KatyMac Tue 25-Mar-14 21:39:24

I had one of them too

I think it's different, & it's gone now

How odd!

Never mind

KatyMac Wed 26-Mar-14 21:48:33

I have to say I feel quite miserable

I had a biopsy on my breast and a small lump was left - bleeding or bruising under the skin (was told to expect it). So I would imagine it's the same for you. It went after a few days.

My test was benign... Hope yours is too.

Thank you - I am glad you were OK

My stitches fell out over night & I had terrible insomnia

I managed a mashed banana for breakfast & a small baked potato for lunch

Teeth cleaning is tricky

I had a lower lip biopsy 2 years ago, had a lump just under it for about a week. And now have a permanent numb spot on my lip. It was just inflammation and went away on its own.

Thanks Weegiemum, I'm just feeling all got at


Swoosg Thu 27-Mar-14 20:28:49

Sounds really really. Hope you have a better night... Who cares about teeth for a day or two.

Swoosg Thu 27-Mar-14 20:29:02

really really horrible!

KatyMac Thu 27-Mar-14 21:32:32

Oh I am cleaning them....I just can't spitsad

Never mind it's much better today

KatyMac Fri 28-Mar-14 19:52:21

& a rash of new ulcers just appeared

It's as sore now as it was right after it was done sad

KatyMac Sat 29-Mar-14 20:16:17

The ones on that stringy bit under my tongue are a real bugger

KatyMac Sun 30-Mar-14 14:40:29

OK I have huge lumps/ulcers and what appears to be a blackhead under my tongue


KatyMac Wed 02-Apr-14 14:57:22

It's quite difficult to eat

kazzawazzawoo Wed 02-Apr-14 19:27:33

kazzawazzawoo Wed 02-Apr-14 19:28:20

KatyMac Wed 02-Apr-14 20:43:29

My blood tests aren't back, my biopsy results won't be back until next Tuesday - I feel in limbo

kazzawazzawoo Wed 02-Apr-14 20:49:20

Horrid to be waiting. Hope you get answers soon. winebiscuitwinebiscuit

KatyMac Wed 02-Apr-14 21:23:17

I'm so pathetic & so needy

I've been a little bit ill for so many years & quite poorly for some months and fairly rotten for 3 or 4 weeks & I'm fed up

Thanks for listening

kazzawazzawoo Wed 02-Apr-14 21:38:22

I know the feeling. Have been miserable and a bit poorly for years. No one took it seriously. Recently changed things with a change of diet. It's horrible to feel poorly all the time for a long time. I hope you get some answers soon. I know how much it helps to write it down on here. I often feel pathetic too. Keep posting smile
