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.
