My close friend has been acting wierd lately, so i sit her down today and asked her what's up, and she finally told me that she found a lump inside of her and she's very worried that's it's cancer. i'm the only person she's told as she's embarrassed about telling friends her age and feels like she can't talk to her parents and i don't know what to do! I can't get her to go to the doctor :confused:
i reckon it's nothing serious, but she's very scared about it, she didn't go in detail but just said it's very big and feels numb?? anyone know what it is and what i should do?

well, without scaring her you need to tell her how important it is that she goes to the doctor. Alot of cancers can be treated but they need to be caught in good time to allow treatment to be the most benficial. Perhaps sit down and talk to her, asking why she doesn't want to go to the docs......offer to go with her.......etc

If she won't go to the doctors, perhaps consider a GUM clinic?

now she's angry at me for keep persuading her to go to see the doctors and said she should've never told me. *sigh*
Yeah to the left, she said she could feel it so i reckon it's not that deep.

Its unlikely to be cancer if shes young lumps can mean anything its probably just a fatty lump. Tell her to stay calm and go to her gp just in case.

nah, she won't go to the gp, i'm getting quite p!ssed now tbh, she's so stressed and it's probably nothing, as she's just so paranoid about everything, it's not the first time she thinks she has some sort of cancer.
yeah it's quite big and hard, i reckon it's just a fatty lump too, she's only 14.

all she said was that it's a large numb lump to the left, and i was wrong, it's quite deep apparently.

If she's worried about it, she really needs to go and see a doctor. She can ask for a female doctor to make it less embarrassing - in any event, it's nothing a doctor hasn't seen before, and it's worth a little embarrassment for some peace of mind, surely? The alternative is for her to do nothing and worry about it, possibly with health consequences... it's not a difficult choice.

Perhaps she would find it easier if you went with her for added support (and to make sure she doesn't chicken out at the last minute)? If you can persuade her to go in the first place, of course.

Good luck.

That's very very dangerous and childish of her not to go to the doctors. Ten to twenty minutes of a checkup wont harm her one bit, but if it turns out to be cancer then it could be life threatening? As a friend you should force her I think.

Well that's the only way she will find out what it is. They are the only ones that can help. We might make her feel better, but we don't know the details about this lump, and we are not doctors. She should just go to the doctors!!!!
OP, reassure your friend that the doctor will not judge. They have seen EVERYTHING before, and it is their job to help, not criticise.

she should go to the doctors... but also not worry too much. vaginas are strange little dudes as far as i can see (and technically i can't actually see - the angle is all wrong). plus, as someone else rightly pointed out, she may just have found her cervix.

Oh :eek: My Lord, this sounds really serious and she definately need to go to the doctor

I think you should scare her and tell her she might die of it, that'll ,make her go to the doctor :rolleyes: If she doesn't she might have a chance to be infertile in the future. Should go to the dr then just leave it and suffer and err...... die

My doesnt she want to go to the doctor though? Is she too embarassed? Can you go with her?
