I did an xray on my gallbladder area. The doctor didn’t notice anything wrong. Do I still need to go for a checkup?

Hi and thank you for asking us

Through the question and statement you gave on the above section, i completely understand your concern over this matter. I suggest you to go to th doctor if the hard lump is accompanied with these symptoms:

  • pain
  • multiple lumps
  • the lump feels firm and fixated
  • the lump persist more than 4 to 6 weeks
  • changes in your breast
  • enlarging lumps in your armpit

But I strongly suggest for you to go to the doctor and check for it physically to know the exact cause of the problem as a physical examination and more information details are crucial for a diagnosis.

Get through your day healthy and energetic.
