: 32 y.o. male ---
: I've had a lump on the left side of my body, near the bottom of my shoulder blade for about 6 years now (I'm finally getting insurance in a month to go to the doctors). Since I first got it, it has changed in size over that time. It grows to about the size of a half a peanut, then months after it being that size, it seems to almost shrink away, then it comes back after a week or 2. Just last month it seemed to be completely gone, but now it's back up to almost the half peanut size again. It is somewhat painful to touch as well and feels like a wobbly chunk of mass that slightly can move around. Well at least it doesn't feel like it's totally attached to anything. Could this possibly be cancerous. I was under the impression cancerous tumors don't "behave" that way. Any thoughts before I go to the docs in a month or 2?
It could be anything! Get a biopsy done.
