I have had this swelling for a year now. It started as just a pain in that area when touched. This went on for about 2 years before I started feeling a swelling in the area.
I have seen 2 doctor about this and one called it a cyst, the other called it a swollen lymph node.
It has increased slightly in size within the last 11 months. It is currently about 14mm x 11mm according to the ultrasound that was done.
The first doctor suggested that I just leave the cyst alone because it is in a delicate area and he wouldnt want to probe it, but how can I leave it when it is growing? and the second doctor wants to try me on antibiotics but can't because I recently had a baby and still nursing.
Has anyone had anything similar to this? any advice?
