I am a 20 year old male and had a lump on my right testical on the inside since I was 12 and the doctor did an ultrasound and said it was nothing but my parents never really discussed it with me assuming it could have been bad I guess.
Now I have a lump the size of the tip of my pinky at the top of my rectum and i've had it for about a year, but it does not seem to be attached to any muscles, but I excrete blood at least once a month.
Now I have developped a very painful lump under my left armpit that is attached to my muscles as it hurts most when I flex. I am very itchy when I shower in hot water and when I itch it leaves marks.
I have lost about 25 pounds in 2 or 3 months. I also have a fluctuating appetite, where one minute I am really hungry but if I wait I feel full and can't eat.
I have had also for about a year now continuous neck pain where I have to crack my neck to get it to go away but comes back after 5 minutes. I am worried this is tied to cancer.
Welcome to ehealthforum,
The lump near anus and excretion of blood with stools could suggest chances of hemorrhoids. The lump in armpit could be suggestive of lymph node inflammation, infection and swelling (which can be due to various causes). The exact cause can only be made out after careful evaluation. Showering in very hot water deprives the body of the essential oils secreted by your skin glands leaving excess dryness which can cause itching. Always have bath in lukewarm/warm water (not hot), and apply moisturizer lotion or oil to soothe the skin. The neck pain and gastric issues could be related. You should consider visiting your doctor for further evaluation (examination and investigations as needed to look for the underlying cause) and assistance. Do not leave stomach empty for more than 3 hours at a stretch (except when sleeping). Maintain healthy and simple diet. Drink plenty of water and cut down on tea and caffeine intake.
