    Exciting News for WebMD Members!

    We've been busy behind the scenes building new message boards for you. You'll have new and easier ways to find messages, connect with others, and share your stories.

    And, this will all be available on your smartphone or other mobile device!

    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going? Save posts you want to continue (this includes your member profile story), so that you can re-post them in the new message boards.

    Keep an eye here and on your email inbox, we'll be back in touch soon to give you all the information you need!

    My son has a lump shaped like a large egg sticking out of the right
    side of his head. his GP thinks it is caused by High blood pressure but I am worried about cancer. he is almost 50 years old and has had this for 2 years, it just seems to keep growing. Has anyone else had anything like this?

    PLEASE have him make an appointment with an ENT today. Have a biopsy done. If this turns out to be cancer...don't jump to conculsions..make sure you are sent to an expert in the type cancer the biopsy shows it to be.
    Thoughts and prayers are with you.
