For four years I have been having excruiating pain on my left side upper rib area when ever I breath in. I have devoloped a large lump (2 inches long and 2 inches wide) under my scapula and above my ribs on the left side. I also have a lump on the back right side of my neck just below my hairline that is 2cm long and seem to be growing up twords my skull. Along with the pain when I breath in, my spine and ribs pop. My middle spine is extremely sensitive to touch. I also have bad stomach issue. I belch constantly, it hurts to eat and I only eat a few bites before I am full and hurting.
I have been to Kaiser 14 times in the last 3 1/2 years
I had an "ABC" blood test, all results normal. I have had an chest x-rays done which they said were normal . I also had a cervical spine x-ray done which was normal except slight elongation of my c7 transverse process, which my Dr. said had nothing to do with my pain. I was tested for celaic disease , which was negitive.I also had a scoliosis screening done after I requested it becuse I noticed on my Chest PA that I had gotten a hold of that My thorcic spine curved to the right. I was told that I have mild scoliosis but that scoloisis is not causing my pain.Kaiser is not willlign to give me an MRI, even though I have requested it due to my concern over my lumps. they have refered my to physical therepy again. The first time they refered my the PT said she didn't want to do to much as she was concerned about my spinal tenderness. I don't know what to do, as Kaiser won't listen and I am extremely worried that i may have cancer as it has taken many lives in my familiy ( Pancreatic cancer, colon cancer, ovarian cancer, stomach cancer and lung cancer) What can I do to get kaiser to help me?
