Lump On Back Near Shoulder Blade
0

6 posts in this topic

Here we go again! My co-worker noticed a lump on my back today that I had not noticed before. When she said it, I was shocked. I have had pain there for a long time, but had no idea that I have a lump there!!!! What the heck can this be? I suspect that my problems go beyond celiac and am going back the doctor.

Probably just a large cyst- I've had a few. Don't know if they are celiac disease related or not. It got infected after getting bigger and bigger and the doctor had to cut it but it was still hard, so I got antibiotics and it ruptured itself and went away. Gross right? lol

I had a lump in the same area in 1984. It appeared a week after I broke out in hives all over my body and every single joint in my body was swollen. I literally could not walk to the bathroom without my mom helping me. I was in the worst pain in my life!!!! It has happened 2 other times sense then. However the lump was after the first episode. I had it removed and the doctor said it was a lypoma (sp) which was just a fatty deposit.

The thing is the other day I noticed a lump under my armpit that is smaller and harder than what I had in the past. I am going to get it checked out and they had better not say IBS.

Any lump should be checked out right away to be on the safe side.

Good luck and i hope it is nothing serious

Any hard lump is suspicious for celiac and probably gluten sensitives as well. Especially, in the armpit, groin, collarbone or jawline. These could be swollen lymph nodes and need to be evaluated.

Lipomas, sebaceous cysts, lymph nodes reacting to infection are the most common findings. But lymphoma (cancer) is one of the major complications of untreated celiac, and every celiac should be aware of this risk. A persistent swollen lymph node needs attention.

    • Gluten Free Chicken? No Such Thing
      Yes, chicken you buy in the store can contain gluten.  Chicken meat will not contain gluten before packaging, but look at the excerpt below from an article entitled: What's really in supermarket poultry (abbreviated title) The article specifically mentions wheat  (it's toward the end of the passage) as a potential ingredient in the solution injected into the chicken meat.  They inject a lot of this solution into the meat, as much as 30% of the chicken weight you pay for can be the injected solution.  If packaged chicken is gluten free it will say so below the box on the plastic wrap that has the nutritional information (calories etc). Here's the passage: His next task is to bulk out the trim by getting it to absorb water and additives. For this to happen, the manufacturer has to create a ‘brine’, a chemical solution that will encourage the meat to retain liquid using binding agents. These binding agents are usually from five main sources, which can be used separately or mixed together. The first is transglutaminase, an enzyme that is essentially a natural glue. Indeed, it is sometimes called ‘meat glue’. The second is from a group collectively known as hydrocolloids, substances that form a gel on contact with water. These hydrocolloids include carrageenan, which is derived from seaweed, as well as the exotically named locust bean gum — extracted from the seeds of the carob tree — and guar gum, which derives from ground guar beans. The third widely-used agent, especially in seafood, is phosphate, which is taken from phosphoric acid and is valued for its ability to make oil adhere to water. The fourth is fibre, made from a source such as wheat, citrus or cellulose. And the fifth is protein powder, which is made by extracting collagen from pigs’ skins.
    • The US Preventative Services Task Force needs our help - tell them why Celiac screening is important!
      I'm British so I can't take part, but good on you for pushing the case for screening.  Aside from the arguments you quote I'd bet there would be significant financial forces opposed to widespread screening. Large food companies, farmers etc.  So there may be an element of politics involved?
    • Biopsy confirmed?
      What were they looking for when they did the endoscopy? This is all backwards. You usually get a blood test first & then if that's positive they do an endoscopy.  Did they tell you to make sure to continue eating gluten until the blood test is taken?
    • Biopsy confirmed?
      Did they say if the villi are damaged?  did they do a full Celiac panel or just a TTG? 
    • Biopsy confirmed?
      Hi all. First post here :-)  I recently received my biopsy results from my endoscopy which showed lymphocytes in my duodenum. My surgeon said this is possibly celiacs and ordered a blood test to confirm. I had the blood test done 2 years ago and it was negative. So my question is could it really be ceilac and has this happened to anyone else? Also does anyone else know if this could be a false reading from the biopsy? And if the blood test is negative will he still assume celiac ... Again I would love to hear your stories on diagnosis if similar to me, So many questions! I get my results on Friday as I have to have further testing for other non-related things from the endo and just want to know the likelihood I guess. Feeling a little daunted and need to start thinking ahead if this is happening  Thanks in advance xx

      Hello cycling lady, have you noticed my picture is showing up as you?  Have no idea why but it's rather disconcerting to see my picture and your words 😉  Do you know how to fix it?  You seem to have far more experience with this board than I do

      Hi There, I don't know if there is a place for videos in the forum. I just watched "The Truth About Gluten" I think it is a good video. I would like to share it somewhere but don't know where it should go. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
      Here is the link if you have never watched it.
