Hi,
 
Recently I had to have a ultra sound done of my right chest due to a very large lump. Now of course I was freaking out it was cancer, mom had it when she was in early 30's im going to be 26. My Dr called me and said it was just yet another case of a servere inflamatory lymph node(however she said there was a tiny cyst but nothing to cause concern). Inflamed lymphs is one of my tops lupus issues along with chest pain due to the chestwall being inflamed. I have to say for once in my life I was happy to hear it was Lupus. Even though I know this is a serious and scary disease I did not want cancer on top of it!
 
Hope everyone is doing well.

LAWCHICK,

That's "good" news it was just the lupus! LOL.

I know what you mean, though, about getting new symptoms and freaking out that it's something serious.

Just don't do what I do and use one of those internet symptom checkers.
I've had myself dead and buried about 6 times now using those, and it always turns out to be something completely different and not serious.

****!!!!

Hugs,
Brandi
