I found a lump on my lower left back about 4\" up from my hip last Monday. By Tuesday it, or certainly the area around it, had vastly grown in size (from spine right round my side - about 8 or 9 inches); giving a deep grumbling kind of pain and a very queezy sickly feeling. It was as if the thing had bubbled-up in a matter of hours; freaked me out totally.
By Wed i could stand it no more and had to see somebody, so i went to the outpatients at the local hospital. I was told it looked like a LIPOMA ( a new term to me) but that was about all the info i got.
I'm still waiting to see a doctor (not my Dr, that would be a miracle) but just any available doctor at the local clinic; first appointment not till end of this week; 11 days after it was discovered. God knows when i'll get a scan or a date to have it removed.
This lump has now shrunk back down and seems to have solidified into a mass about the same size as your average new bar of bath soap. I'm feeing queezy still, have that grumbling pain in my back and now also around my hip and kidney.
I've read that these LIPOMAS are often linked to Insulin / Diabetes, but this info as is most on this topic if vague.
Does anybody know what causes these; are they dangerous; can they lead to other things; and why is so little info given out on these when first identified. Personally i found it rather worrying, especially with a strong history of cancer in the family.
I believe these LIPOMAS are normally non-cancerous, but something that can appear grow and solidify in such a short space of time ant bee a good thing.
What does the surgery involve; any ideas?
