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?
Thanks for your Reply!
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.
