Thanks very much for responding, it makes me feel a little better knowing most of the time its cyst etc. I have never felt this before but I have to be honest I don't do the exam as much as I should. I lost alot of weight about 4 years ago when down to 88 pounds with a flare up, and have gained back about a 100 so I'm hoping its fatty tissue. I think as soon as we hear lump or mass we automatically think of cancer. Thanks again and will let you know how it goes..
