Hi Irish,
     Sorry to hear you are not feeling well, I had same kind of lump and it turned out to be nothing! :) Right now I"m dealing with skin cancer AGAIN and daily migraines. Always something here too. Hope you husband is doing better.
    Take care and lots of hugs to you.

Well, saw the doc today. The lump is almost gone now---it feels just like a little seed. It was an inflammed lymph node. I was inclined to think that was what it was, but a person can be in denial at a time like this so I just kept that thought in the background.

I still wonder what in the heck I have had with the sweats, chills, headache, etc Had been on antibiotic in June and July. Still have a bad headache off and on in my left sinus by my nose. CAn't get it to drain very well even with the steroid irrigations. Don't seem to have infection in my sinuses. Will just have to make an appt to see ENT again, I suppose.

I have such tender sore breasts even at my almost 70 age. Doc told me that studies have shown that women with sore breasts are less likely to have breast cancer. Somehow that doesn't make me feel any more safe!!! Thanks to all of you. Irish ;D

I just saw this and yes, Irish, that's what I'm telling you.  Crooked, lop sidedm mismatched, whatever.

I could have reduction on the one, but that sounds awfully painful and not much of anyone sees them anyhow.   :-*

I have such tender sore breasts

Irish - are you SURE you're not pregnant??   ;)   :o  Tender breasts was one of my first clues I was pregnant.  LOL

I'm glad the lump is almost gone.  Yay!  Although, I'm sorry you haven't been feeling very good though.    :-\  You sure could use a health break, Irish!!  NOW would be good!

As always - thinking of you.

irish, oh I thank God you are ok. I am sorry you feel so bad though. My husband has had all this stopped up sinuses, and a cold or something. I thought I had it last night, but felt a bit better today.

Everyone watch out for the west nile virus going through some areas.

YAY irish YAY!!!!

So glad to hear your news, Irish!  You deserve a positive outcome - a nice break, eh?  I can't imagine what's been going on with you otherwise - the chills, fever, etc.  This is probably off-the-wall, but I live in Ohio and right where I am there has been quite a bit of the mosquito-borne West Nile Virus, and it often manifests in the ways you describe your symptoms.  Also, tick-bite can result in that stuff.  Don't know whether those critters are an issue where you are, but just a thought.
