Hey guys. 2 weeks ago my skin started itching. Everytime I stand up I feel dizzy but for the past week I’ve been sleeping at 2-5 AM n wakes up at 2PM normally. I’m having my a bit of tummy pain, a tiny bit, it doesn’t even hurt but I can feel it. I have a lump in my right underarm which doesn’t feel bigger or anything. Itchy skin still comes sometimes. Do I have cancer or not, I’ve been worrying for the past 2 weeks. My mum says I don’t, and my dad too. She won’t let me check with the GP just yet so I need answers from you lot. Thank you

...Do I have cancer or not...
Are you seriously going to trust people on a student forum telling you if you either:

- have cancer or

- don't have cancer?

Go and speak to your GP, over the phone if required.

I don't think any of us are qualified to give a diagnosis. And we don't even know enough to try and give an opinion. It could be lymphoma, but it could also be a red bump, scratch, or skin problem. We could never know. When I had it a thought, it was a dermatological problem. I went to the dermatologist, and apparently, it was lymphoma. So I suggest you do the same thing I did. Go to see a doctor. They'll run some blood tests and give a precise diagnosis.

Some of us are We just shouldn't!

(It's against this forum's rules and definitely against GMC guidance)

You won’t know that until you know the diagnosis, which you won’t know until you go to see your GP/ medical professional.

That's for you to discuss with your GP, we can't give you reliable information
