Brief Answer: Unexplained lump Detailed Answer: Hi, Thanks for the follow -up with needed answers. According to you lumps on both side can be felt only and you don't have any associated past or present illness. This makes it a unexplained lump most probable cause may be in the lymph nodes. Being on both side a cyst or swollen vein can be ruled out. As it is increasing in size, it is worrisome. A proper clinical examination need to be done and if found to be a node, FNAC(Fine Needle Aspiration Cytology) may be advised. Further management can only be done by a local surgeon so it is advised to contact one. If you do not have any clarifications, you can close the discussion and rate the answer. Wish you good health.
