I just posted this on the anxiety forum but I need all the support I can get.  My husband told me that the doctor called him today and told him that the knot on his head is a fatty tumor!!!!!  I am freaking out.  THe doc said that they will have to get another MRI to see more about it.  I am terrified.  IF I lose him I will die.

Rachel,

A fatty tumor isn't cancerous. So hopefully, if it bothers him, they can remove it. Please don't be worried. Have faith. You will get through this.

We are all here for you so please relax. Everything will be fine, you are not going to lose your husband. Be thankful there is no cancer.

I think you need to try to have faith.

hugs, Karen...

Rachel

A lipoma is a slow-growing, fatty tumor situated between the skin and the muscle layer. Often a lipoma is easy to identify because it moves readily with slight finger pressure. It's doughy to touch and usually not tender. You could have several that persist for years. Lipomas can occur at any age, but they're most often detected in middle age.

A lipoma isn't cancer and is usually harmless. Treatment generally isn't necessary, but if the lipoma is in a bothersome location, is painful or is growing, it should be removed.

There are several treatments and these are just the two most popular ones.

Liposuction. This treatment uses a needle and a large syringe to remove the fatty tumor. Liposuction is usually done when the lipoma is in a location where you want to avoid a large scar. It's difficult to remove the entire tumor with this technique.

Surgical removal. Larger lipomas are best removed by surgically cutting them out. Recurrences after removal are uncommon.

My Father-in-law has had many removed right at the clinic.

Please kick the anxiety and worry to the curb and believe that it is just what the physician has said..........a fatty tumor.

Take care  and go to your appointment today ready to discuss your anxiety and depression with your therapist.

Take care

Okay,
So I am taking an optomistic attitude with this. I am not going to worry that my husband will die. I am just going to have faith in God to take care of us like He said He would. And I am going to love my husband with all of my heart and soul because I know that we are not invincable at our young age. I am just going to love him and try not to worry about tommorow and deal with the now. Maybe this is just a harmless wake up call for both of us. THanks for the support and advice all. I will keep my hope and trust in Him. I am on my way to my therapy app. Will let you know how that went when I get back. Love to all!!
Rachel

Hi Rachel,

I hope that your therapy goes well, let us know. You might not be able to cover everything in the first session. So be patient and continue going. Please let us know how it goes. We will be waiting for your reply.

Don't worry about your husband, everything will be just fine. As Kitt has noted, if the fatty tumor is causing a problem they will remove it. If not, they will let it go. It is not cancerous. My late husband had one on his back that was huge. They removed it and didn't even put him to sleep to do it. So try not to worry.

Best wishes for a wonderful day,

hugs, Karen...
