Hi I am a 23 year old male. I had a thoracotomy done on my right lung 5 months ago and it caused my to have bad health anxiety and occasional panic attacks. I also have a lump on my right rib that is messing with my head. I cant even do the things I used to anymore. Its ruining my life. I used to feel like a terminator and now i feel like im being terminated lol.
I have had this lump on my right rib for about 6 years or so. It has now gone flat and it feels different, I also have these two lumps in my lower left back which the docs say are lipomas but i get these weird feelings and pains in my lower left back and front and my the left side of my stomac slightly sticks out more than the right when im bloated, I have also been constipated for a month now. This really worries me because i have also been losing weight (5/6kg maybe more) since last year but i also changed my diet slightly because of acid reflux and I used to lift weights and excercise alot, so im not sure if thats the cause. I feel dizzy and tired all the time. My dizziness goes away whenever i am driving, jogging or lying down. I also cant sit without leaning on something and I cant stand for long periods of time, I feel like a old person but im only 23! I told the doc this but he said its an Exostosis and its harmless, but it did not show up on the x ray but it did on the ultrasound, no biopsy was done, I asked him it was causing me to lose weight and he said no but sent me for a thyroid test which came back fine. I also told two other GP's about this and they said its all anxiety. They did have a carefree look on their faces though lol. Should i trust them? Am I worrying for nothing? Why is are they so confident its harmless because i feel like im messed up and its getting worse everyday...
Is this cancer or some other illness that is making me feel like this or is it just bad anxiety and stress?
Any help would be much appreciated.
