I've found 2 lumps on my groin this morning. One is pea sized and the other double the size on the other side.

I've got bloods this morning anyway due to 4 months of fatigue and I've managed to get a GP appointment at 11:30.

I'm fucking terrified. I've had horrific pelvic pain for months that they thought was endo but now aren't sure. My chest hurts. I can't manage more than a couple of meals a week.

Please handhold. Or tell me I'm overreacting and slap me blush

No slapping here but I’m happy to hold your hand until you have answers x x x

Thank you.

I googled too much this morning so just working myself up into a state

Hand hold from me as I am in a similar position. I think it's just a gland as I am so run down. I have had severe stomach pain for over a week now all down my left side from above my hip all the way into my ribs shoulder and back. I went to gp last week who sent me off saying I was constipated. I have been to the toilet and the pain is the same. Now this morning I have a pea sized lump in my left armpit. No doctors appointments in my surgery but they have booked me one somewhere else for 5.30. I'm tired and just want to cry

Hang in there! Very very few of us haven’t found lumps that have scared the shot out of us and most of the time it’s nothing. Hope all is well and you get good results!

JesusDontWantMeForASunbeam Mon 09-Dec-19 09:50:35

Oh no timetogetmeback sad it's horrible isn't it? Hope your appointment goes well

I'm hoping it's just an ingrown hair or something but I've felt so shit for months that I'm overthinking it.

How did the doctors appointment go?


JesusDontWantMeForASunbeam Mon 09-Dec-19 14:02:35

I've been referred to haematology and will see them within 2 weeks. I think I'm a bit numb. I was expecting them to say it was an ingrown hair but hopefully they can rule out anything nasty.

I’ve had two lumps on my groin for about 20 years. Doctor checked them and all good.

JesusDontWantMeForASunbeam Mon 09-Dec-19 14:18:03

Oh that's good! That's what I'm hoping for. As there's other symptoms they want to run some tests.

It will probably still be nothing but at least they are taking it serious and your getting seen quickly. At least this way you will know smile

@TimeToGetMeBack how did you get on?

Whenever I'm run down or had/have a virus the glands in my groin come up. Like peas.

I especially had it happen when I had glandular fever.

Hope you're ok.

Did not want to read and run. I am 36 and have had for the last 20 years a large 3 cm gland in neck, one around 2cm in groub and a pea one in armpit. Whenever I got sick in uni days or had s gland il from shaving they just never went back down. Some people are just glandy
My son is the same

Sorensmum Mon 09-Dec-19 19:05:43

Sorry meant groin not groub

Rocsand03 Mon 09-Dec-19 19:18:33

Sending positive thoughts xx

Mintjulia Mon 09-Dec-19 19:21:59

Op, same here, it’s probably a gland.

Hopefully you can have a rest over Xmas, eat some decent food, get some exercise, sleep in, avoid stress. Handhold from me too.

JesusDontWantMeForASunbeam Mon 09-Dec-19 19:59:09

If it was just a gland then would my neck/armpits not be like it too?

The dr said she found some more when she checked the ones I'd said about. Just crossed my legs and managed to squeeze the huge one and it hurt like fuck confused

No not necessarily. Only the ones in my groin ever come up.

TimeToGetMeBack Mon 09-Dec-19 21:21:15

@JesusDontWantMeForASunbeam they have not got a clue what's going on. Said the pain seems to be stomach and kidneys, urine clear. Need urgent bloods tomorrow. The lump they think unrelated and a cyst. I have co codadmol but it's not even touching the pain.

TimeToGetMeBack Tue 10-Dec-19 23:52:25

Thought I'd update. No one seems interested in lump but spent a day in a&e due to the pain. Bloods clear urine clear (knew that from yesterday) they think I have a stomach ulcer but want me in pain for a few more days then they will stock a camera down my throat. They are stumped as the area is more kidneys. Was meant to have a scan but then changed their minds. How are you @JesusDontWantMeForASunbeam

JesusDontWantMeForASunbeam Wed 11-Dec-19 09:33:02

Oh god hope you're ok. It's horrible feeling like no one is listening

My bloods are back and nothing looks dodgy. Waiting to hear on haematology appointment.

Lump is a bit sore but I think that's because I'm aware of it now.
