Probally, just do as your mom says. It really depends on your insurance but I have seen places higher than that. Shoot one dr my wife goes to, his office visit is $350.00 or so.

To see a surgeon (before insurance) it would have cost me $400. After insurance, I ended up paying the $60 deductible. Still VERY high cost.

I think you should be more concerned about stomach ulcers with all the worrying you do!

I'm sure its not a tumor.. but if there is a continuing pain then you should let your parents know again

If it was a heart tumor there would be more of a concern from the doctors. I had a tumor three years ago that wasn't as serious as a heart tumor and they transported me by ambulance from the doctors office to the hospital ER for an emergency surgery. I arrived at the hospital at 4:30 and was in recovery by 9:30. Don't worry about it. I know, it's a health concern, but if it was a life or death situation, they would be treating it like one.

First off, relax a little bit. Pain from a cancerous tumor would have you bed ridden and basically non-functional. Second off, if it was a heart tumor, you wouldn't be able to see it; it's not going bulge through the bone like that.

If you are that worried about it, then keep a log of it to show your doctor/parents. You should keep track of the pain; when it hurts, what were you doing at the time, is it sharp, stabbing, pinching, pulsing, dull, enough to make you stop what you're doing or something that is just annoying, etc. Also see if it gets bigger. I doubt it will overnight, so take a picture where you can see it clearly once a week. Take it in the same pose and the same lighting every week so you can see if there is any real difference.

It's easy to hear something on tv or read it online or in a book and think that you have something similar. Give it time and see what happens. And quit worrying about it, it does nothing to help the situation.
