Over the past two decades, John’s lump has grown into a squishy, tennis-ball sized mass protruding from the front of his neck. 

The lump is so big that John has even had to adjust his sleeping routine out of fear that it will block off his airway. 

‘I cannot sleep in my own bed at night, I’m sleeping on the couch,’ he says, explaining how he prompts himself up using the arm of the sofa. 

‘If I lay too flat it changes the sound of my voice, I can feel it where it just lays flat on my windpipe; it feels like the bump is cutting off my airway.’ 

Despite his health now being a real concern, John admits that he is skeptical of Midwestern doctors. 

‘I went to a physician that wanted to perform surgery on it, he told me they could cut the wrong vessel and I could be possibly be paralysed on one side of my face,’ he reveals.

‘That kind of scared me away, so I just let it go.’

Getting emotional, John praises the support he has received from his wife, children and loving granddaughter over the past few years of his life, but admits that some members of his family haven’t been so kind. 

‘My extended family, 신사역피부과 I don’t see eye-to-eye with them,’ John says.

‘I get tired of being made fun of. They’ve said it “looks like your nuts are hanging off your chin!”‘ 

Enough is enough for John, who is determined to take back control of his life. 

‘I’ve got to get this off me so I can get my life back,’ he says defiantly.

With that, John turns to Dermatological Surgeon Dr Sandra Lee to see if she can remove the massive lump on his neck that has plagued him for 20 years. 

‘I am very excited to be here today,’ John explains, arriving at the California clinic.

‘I don’t trust the Midwest doctors. This is it, I’m not having another doctor touch me.’

Straight away, Dr Lee thinks she might know what the problem is. 

‘John has what I believe is a large lipoma right in the middle of his neck, and there are a lot of important vessels that go to our head and back to our heart, 신사역피부과 like your jugular,’ she explains.

‘There are many ways that you could really threaten somebody’s life with a little slip of the scalpel.’
