Strep throat, back pain from thorax to thighs followed by sores on thigh, buttocks, painful and open, bloating, sore nipples. Cancer signs?

Hello I am a 30 year old female, about 218lb (I lost 80 lbs about a year ago) just last week I had strep throat to the point that I could not work for 5 days. In the midst of my illness the main worry was my back pain , from the Thorasic down to behind my theighs, I took some Alives and Ibprofen/Keflex (for infection). My symptoms bettered,, but then I found bad bite like soars on outside of my left theigh, and on lineing of buttchek and rt theigh. Also a 3rd one in the inside of my left theigh. These are open (as a bad mosquito bite) and are a bit painful. I have been feeling a bit bloated (lft side of stomach pain) and sore nipples . I don t know what is going on and I am getting scared. Cancer runs thru my mind, but only because there is a history of it in my family. In 206 I was diagnosed with a Fatty Liver due to rapid weight loss . Please help me. ------Dee82

Hi, the bad bite like soars on your thighs may be a infection of the skin or hair follicle. the presence of pain usually rules out the malignant causes unless there is evidence of infection. the presence of cancer your family needs genetic counselling and screening for the early diagnosis and treatment of cancer. if the lesions are irregular and bleeding much, you can consult the dermatologist to rule out common skin infections and need for the biopsy of the same.
