when I was 8 years old i got a hard moveable lump on my tummy, and i had it removed and the docters said it was simply a hair or extra tissue. A year later i got a lump under my arm which was soft and moveable, thinking it was the same thing i told no one and waited for it to go away.it didn't though, and it grew alot, then a few years later i got another lump under my other arm and i waited for it to go away by itself but again it didnt so a few months later i told my mother who took me to the docter yesterday but he laughed and said it was just extra skin and tissue and that it wasnt near my lymph nodes.I was unsure if i should trust him so I went onto a website to research lymphoma and i looked for other lumps on my body. I found 2 on my neck which are the same size and feel the same as the one i had on my tummy when I was 8.these lumps just beside eachother, and hard, very moveable and are slightly bigger that pea size.please tell me your views im scared that i left the lumps so long that if they are cancerous i dont have a chance of treatment.
