I have had a 'lump' as described by people on these pages for over 2 years now (I'm 25 years old). Being a typical man I didn't go to the doctors until today. I have been told I have a PS. I figured that this thing could require surgery to remove it but having spoken to the doctor and read several web sites I am now really scared. I don't know if only people who are having extensive problems are posting comments or whether the success rate is as actually as low as it seems. Some sites quoted around 90% of ops didn't require further ops over a 5 year period, but practically everyone here has problems. Mine isn't quite as bad as a lot of peoples, my lump has never got any bigger than a small grape (unlike some tennis balls that have been decribed). I'm wondering what will happen if I just leave it. Does anyone know if it gets worse? Mine has been the same since it first appeared. From the comments of some people I get the feeling I'd be better off not having the operation. The pain bothers me for a day or two each month and other than that its okay. I simply can't afford several months off work. Does anyone have any comments? I'd greatly appreciate them.
