Oncology (General Cancer)/Sore, and painful spots

Advertisement


Question
I have several areas that are painful, extremely tender, some even feel like bruises, and burning. A tiny spot on my ankle, behind my right knee and I feel a small lump, left outside thigh a small spot, both arm pit areas and down a the insides are very painful ,tops of my breast are tender, lymph node on my neck that gets big and acts up off and on. My back has hurt me in the same spot beside my shoulder blade for a year. Sever rubbing is the only thing that relieves me at times on it. I am 53 , had nine kids. I try to exercise and eat healthy. I am about 25 pounds over weight. Part of me thinks I have lymphoma but don't know what to think. A lot of my pain is constant. .

Answer
Lymphoma is not what first comes to my mind but your symptoms do not by themselves present any certain diagnosis. So my advice must be that you let a doctor check you soonest!
