2 years ago I noticed a hard pea sized lump left groin. Today it's 3 fingers wide and mushy. A month ago I found a hard pea size lump on right side groin. For 2 years I've had weight that fluctuates from 150-190 from month to month. Currently I'm 152 the lowest I've been since I was 14. I'm 35 now. Im used to being fat and wearing size 36 or even 38 wuaist size pants. Now I almost need a belt wearing size 32. I ccannsee my abs for the first time in my life. And I'm mot dieting. Right now I have to eat something every 2 hours or I start to get a little dizzy. I feel like I'm starving always. Get so hungry it makes me nauseous. If the pattern keeps ill be 190 in a month. I know 40 pound weight swings from month to month isn't normal especially without dieting. I feel like I'm wasting away atm. I don't like weighing this little. None of my clothes fit.
Had severe night sweats for 2 year's now. Sometimes I have to change my sheets.
My wife has begged me for a year to go to the doctor. I'm too afraid. I really don't feel right this time. I'm eating like a pig but get no energy from food. I do feel really light on my feet though.
I can't explain how but since about a month after I found that 1st lump 2 years back I haven't felt right. Just overall felt not sick but not quite right either
Anyone have any thoughts?
My thoughts would be listen to your wife. The 40lbs weight fluctuation must be fluid as it cannot be fat or muscle. Given your description I might be questioning your Thyroid function (hyper-Thyroidism?) and Kidneys, a remote, second. The worst the doctor will do is listen to your symptoms and send you off for some blood tests, you really have to go as you are clearly not normally healthy.
You know what you have to do. Right?
However, ignorance is not always bliss.
Ignoring or avoiding a problem isn't going to make it go away.
All it does is limit your choice.
Please go to the doctor. You will be surprisingly relieved no matter what the results. Not knowing makes you live under a cloud.
When you find out it's a small problem,
You will regret all this worrying you and your wife have endured.

My prayers are with you.
As the Nike commercials say...
"Just do it" !!!
