My husband has a hard lump that moves freely, it seems as if its surrounded by something.It also kinda looks like it may have a head to it but for fear of him getting mad at me I don't dare stare at it. He's had it about a year. I can feel the lump but there also is something else about an inch in long and half inch wide. It doesn't hurt or itch. I'm slightly freaking out. I want him to go to the doc but he just moved here from England and doesn't have insurance just yet. He gets mad at me when I say something about it. I'm worried it's cancer. But I always heard that cancerous lumps don't move around much. Is this true I really need to give my mind some peace until I can get him to the doc. I'm about to lose it. I can't lose him. Thanks for your help.
