    Hello, I know it is a taboo subject for us men, but I understand the priority of prevention and co-serving health. It happens to me that two days ago I felt an unusual lump around my year, something that I had never felt, I tried to document myself about it before being alarmed and going to the doctor. And this, because I don't feel any pain or discomfort, but because I know my body, I know that it is not normal, since it was not there. I would appreciate a medical advice to me about it.
