Hi there,
Thanks for writing in.
I am a medical specialist with an additional degree in cardiology. I read your mail with diligence.
If you have any of the four features listed below please go to ER or have someone taken to emergency room.
1. PAIN
2. REDNESS ON THE LUMP
3. SWELLING EVEN IF IT INCREASES SLIGHTLY MORE THAN WHAT YOU NOTICED
4. THERE IS THROBING
To add to it if you have warmth over the swelling or running a fever which was not there yesterday. Good Luck.
With Best wishes.
With Best Wishes:
