 I am so scared I think I am developing lymphoma. I know that discussion here are on prostrate cancer but it seems that I can not find any where that lymphoma can be discussed. Since prostrate cancer is related to lymphoma I think I can find any genuine help from here. I am so sorry for this.
I am a young man of age 29. I got a  lump on my left tigh and it is there for about 10 years. It is painless and grow very slowly. It is now a size of a thumb.
Just 2 years ago I began to develop multiple lumps on my hands. I got four very small lumps on my left hand. Three just above my elbow and one below my elbow. there is also one on my right hand just above my elbow. I think many more will appear. I am really scared and would like any genuine advice from any friend out there who can advice me on the symptoms of lymphoma and can also give me the difference between lipoma and lyphoma. I am scared and really in need.

Well Cee Kay,
Lipoma is a non cancerous slow growning lump that has no cancerous likeness. Lyphoma is cancer that arises lymphatic tissue. Please check on a hodgkins/non hodgkins (sp?) cancer site for more information on the subject. My thought is that these lumps you have are not cancer. Only a Doc will be able to tell you what the lumps are for certain. The thing to remember is that lipomas cannot not become cancer....
Good Luck and be well.
