Hi everyone. I'm hoping someone can offer some advice. I have a lump on my arm. Doctors took an x-ray and a ct and said it was nothing to worry about. Then I heard from a friend that neither of these look at soft tissue (or that a ct can be of soft tissue if specified). Is there a chance that they missed the problem because they were looking at bone instead?

  • if the doctors said u r fine they ur probably fine. i have many lumps throughout my body and they turn out to be cyst, lumps of tissue - for me it is gynetic, my mother has many also. just get it checked out every few yrs and if it changes in size or shape get it checked out immediatly.
