right i am looking for a word. it begins with an m, it is another word for a harmless fleshy lump. it is a ganglion or melonoma.

my son recently had a colonoscopy and they found a lump. his surgeon said its probably this m word and i cant remember what the m word is. i would be very grateful if you could help.
thanks
jennie

I think a ganglion is a hard fleshy lump found unde the skin - normally quite small and can be in the hands etc.

Please bear in mind I have done no research whatsoever - just think I remember my friend having on once!

All I can think of is benign, but that's not a "m" word.

Well given he had a Colonscopy, have a look at the wikipedia page, see if any words sound familiar

Clearly neither of them then ....:oops:

I did wonder if the molluscum bump was different to the molluscum tags my niece has thought perhaps it may be an internal thing.

Jenny, your son's G.P. should have his notes, I'm sure he would tell you if you ask.
#32
im not sure thank you for looking though, it is just so frustrating i should remember these things

Melena- black bloody stool!

Good luck to you & especially the wee man!

Meconium?
#40
Do you remember what he said about your son's condition? What I mean is, do you need to know this particular word to help you find out more about what's wrong? Maybe if you try googling his symptoms the word will pop out at you. I find that I am so worried and stressed in these situations I never remember what the doctor has said, when I get home I feel bloody stupid, maybe you could record what is said next time?
