Three Bumps. Oh The Joy Of The Three Bumps.

Sat Mar 20, 2010 6:15 pm

So, I am not worrying, but of course, but as it seems like every single time I see a doctor, something new arises, (I already at 35 years old have arthritis, hypertension, and am pre-Diabetic, amongst many others, so am wondering if I should go to my doctor yet again and point out the fact that I have noticed three separate bumps: one of my scalp, one on my right elbow, and one beneath my left big toe.

Let's just see what he has to say....what with all my dumb luck, medically....

I'm not a doctor, but those seem like good places for benign cysts. Joints especially. I have a cyst in my elbow and one underneath my tongue that if you press up on my chin you can feel.

When I was 14, I had to have a biopsy on a cyst on a testicle. That was not fun, and I had a qualifying horse show to go to for World's Championship the next month. Toilet paper stuffing my tighty whities was a must then! Anyway, it was also benign. I actually have quite a few cysts in my epididymis gland, that have all been checked out and ultra-sounded, and are all fine. I'm wondering though if riding the horses had anything to do with the increased frequency of cysts in the area. (This are inside and invisible to the eye, and they are really deep).

To me, the locations don't seem dangerous......

Did they remove the cyst? I had some removed when I was in my early 20s that were benign, and it was some of the worst pain I have endured (with the exception of a gall bladder attack). I would not want to endure that again, as it felt like a loaded train was parked on my balls.
Yay Pudding!

It didn't hurt until they took it out. It was actually attached to the right testicle, and after the surgery, it was swollen to nearly double the size of the other one. I also had a problem with the incision re-opening, due to me trying to get back in the saddle too early. I was 14 and we had just bought a new horse, and I really needed to ride. But yeah, it hurt. It was also the first time I had ever had my nutz shaved, and that stuff growing back was SOOOO annoying.
