This is Dr Basu, experienced Internal Medicine Specialist.
I am here to address your concerns and provide great service.
Palpable abnormality can be benign in most cases especially if it is not growing rapidly.
In rare cases, this can be a sarcoma or malignant growth.
That can only be checked by MRI scan and subsequent biopsy.
So I have to agree with Dr Scott.
Weight loss can be due to the other causes besides malignancy.
Hyperthyroidism, diabetes, malabsorption syndrome, inflammatory bowel disease are some common causes.
It was my pleasure to help you today.
