I had one too. I complained, doc said I was fine. Then later I said it was getting a little bigger...doc sent me for an ultrasound. All looked fine. One week later I was in the hospital with an abcess and caught staph when they opened it up. (full story in my blog)
Be persistant. If you think something is wrong insist on a CT scan. That's how they see if it is an abcess. I was in the hospital a week and 1/2 with mine. Throwing up uncontrollably. Ugh. Also check your temp around midnight each night (or before you go to bed) for some reason I was having what they call a "midnight spike" fever with mine. a little high a night and fine in the day. It progressed to a low grade fever all day and near 103 every night (in the hospital) I had to have IV antibiotics and a home nurse for a month and 1/2.
Not trying to boo hoo or scare you but you know your body better than your doc and you'll KNOW that something is not right, even if they tell you you're ok.
They called my lump "scar tissue" the 1st 2 times I complained.
Hope it works out to be nuttin' :) :) :) ~Stella
