Hi donna,

It appears as though something is stressing you out.

How long have you had this lump?

What stress challenges are you experiencing at the moment?

I do not have enough information to give a specific answer.


Thanks Cecil,

 Got it checked out today and it is a subcutaneous (sp) cyst. Not a worry. But, your response makes me reflect - I will definitely look at those stress factors in my life as I know they do impact well-being.


Thank you, donna
