On the back

There was a lump discovered at his back; on the left shoulder last year. And it got bigger and harder this year. Some day he complained of pain too.


Yet my stubborn hubby did not consult doctor or had it checked out early. However when another lump was formed on the back, just next to his left arm few months ago; he has finally decided to seek consultation this week.

He went to Timberland Medical Centre on Monday for consultation and finally had the 2 lumps removed on Thursday afternoon in the hospital.


The lump that next to the neck was very deep so the surgeon needed 2 incisions to take it out, hence the big patch on hubby's back.

He was discharged the next day and on medical leave for a week to recuperate.  The lump was tested and doctor confirmed it is non-cancerous fatty lump (lipoma).

Wish my hubby a speedy recovery.

Good to hear it's not malignant. Benign lumps are good news. Hope he recovers from the operation soon. :)

Speedy recovery to your husband!
My sis had a lump on her back and the back of the shoulder as well.
Doctor said it was benign and she left it. It was an eye sore though so she eventually got it removed as well.
