    Jim has a lump under the skin in his right breast/chest area.  It is causing him a little discomfort and it is itching?  What does the itching mean?

    He has about 5 other places (lumps)…some get big, ache a bit, and then get smaller…What does all this mean?

    Thanks for any responses!

    Take Care,

    Sherron, wife to Jim

      My tumor is itchy as well as the skin is swollen and red above the tumor.  I've been told by my doctors that the itching and redness is likely caused by the tumor pushing against the lymphatic and blood vessels near the skin.  It is very annoying!

      Best of luck
