Hello! My name is***** to JustAnswer. I'm reviewing your question now, and will post back with your reply momentarily.

Considering that you have a history of two solid organ tumors in the past this is not a very good symptom

You do need to see the doctor for an examination and an ultrasound to look further

A mass lesion or tumor needs to be ruled out

Please feel free to ask if you have any other question
