Can someone tell me if Lipoma or Muscle Hernia are "common" to Lichen SD? I have felt this knot just blow the skin on my Upper Left Quadrant of my Abodmen for about 7-8 months now, and have mentioned it to both my primary care physician and my gastroenterologist. Of which both thought it was a floating rib, being that they couldn't' feel it. I had a CT Scan done in Early May, 2008, which didn't show anything.
So, finally last Friday, my gastro doctor could actually feel it and has sent me to a surgeon. I met with the surgeon today and because of it's exact location, he can't tell by feeling if it's 100% lipoma or if it is a muscle that has hernaited. It is right on the very edge of the abdominal wall, so either way, because it is very painful, especially if I sit up straight or reach up for something (which at 5ft 2 inches, I reach up for everything), it has to be surgically removed.
I was just curious if I could get an idea of it's common-ness especially in Lichen SD patients.
Have a fabulous week!
