    4 lumps found

    I have found 4 lumps bilateral near my ear loved and the end of the jaw area and bilateral neck at the base of the skull. I was dc in May with Endometrial cancer, should I tell my gynecologic oncologist, my PCP or just leave it alone, that I am still reeling from my dx in May?

      I'd definitely tell your gyn oncologist AND your PCP. I'm not at all a medical person, but I'd guess that bilateral is less likely to be cancer than if they were unilateral. Anyway, I'd tell your docs today and go from there. I wish you the best.

      I would also tell them. It may well be nothing, but I'd want the peace of mind of knowing for sure.

      I was told to start with my Oncologist when reporting anything at all, they would decide if it were an issue for them or my PCP.

      I would tell them quickly. They can either ease your fears or get you started on some treatments! Either way, getting it looked at right away is important!

      Good luck!

      Definitely tell your oncologist - I learned a long time ago - there are two people that we have to tell the truth to - our doctors and our attorney - they can't help us unless they know the whole story. Best wishes.

      I always let my oncologist know about anything that pops up. Sometimes I can get to my PCP quicker but I would also notify my oncologist. Let us know how it goes.

      Sweetheart, you made it through the last cancer.. IF this is cancer, you already know how to fight. You absolutely cannot help but be afraid, that's a given. But remember how frightened you were with the first, and you came through it. With God's help, you can do it again. I hope you don't have to. Know you are in my prayers, Love

      The lumps you describe are lymph nodes. Get an apointment with your PCP now. The sooner you know what they are the less you will have to fear.

      Yes, it's very important and urgent that you tell your oncologist as soon as possible. Don't delay.

      And remember rhere are reasons other than cancer for bumps to appear and for lymph nodes to swell.

      Get checked out by your docs.

      Very good night.
