Im a 17 yr old British male with blone hair and blue eyes. I'm about 6ft3 in height and weigh about 13 stone.

Over the past 6 weeks, I've had nothing but cancer on my mind. It first started when I found a lump on my left ribs which I thought was cancer and had it checked by my doctor the day after. I was told that it was a lipoma and it was fine.

I now have about 4 of these on my ribs in total, and should be having them removed soon if the doctor will allow it. However, apart from these cysts I have also had quite alot of irritation and pain from some small lumps located on my stomach muscles.

There are 2 lumps, one which is under my left ribs and is under the skin and seems to be attached to what ever muscle/organs are there. The lump is about the size of a pea, however doesn't have the same shape as it feels a little flatter. This pain comes and goes and does not feel like my lipomas.

The second is on my right side and is positioned about 10 cm to the right of my bellybutton. It also stings, however can not be felt as a lump but I think it could possibly be the same thing. The pain comes and goes, and doesn't really seem to have a pattern. Eating and drinking make no difference and when I tense my stomach I can feel the lump more on my left side.

I've read up on the net, and fear that I may have some type of cancer. I dont have any other symptoms and look fit and healthy. I've visisted the doctor about 8 times in the past 6 weeks, and have had blood tests done and they've all came back clear. I asked the doctor if I could have the lipomas removed as they're uncomfortable when I lie on them and he said I should give them a few months and if I'm still not happy then he will operate.

At the moment, the lipomas are not the cause for my concern, it is the other sore spots which I have. None of my lipomas or other lumps stick out of my skin nor are they visible at all. I have to push down relatively hard to feel the lump on my left, and do hope it's nothing serious.

If anyone could shine some light on whats happening to me here, I would be most greatful as this has been tormenting my mind over the past 6 weeks.

Thankyou and stay well.
