Man Has Huge Growth On His Neck For 11 Years Before Getting It Checked

A man on TikTok has explained how he had a huge lump on his neck for 11 and a half years before finally going to the doctors to ask them about it.

Loading…

Mercifully, the TikToker - known only as Zee - found that the huge growth was not a danger to him, and certainly wasn't the big thing - you know the one - that people often assume these things are.

He's even given his pleonomic adenoma - which is a benign salivary gland tumour - a jaunty name.

He's called it Frank.

In a video posted towards the beginning of January, he explained: "OK, meet Frank.

"So, Frank has been with me for the past 11 and a half years, since June 2009.

"He started off really, really small, but then just grew and grew and grew and then last year just went out of control."

"The reason why I didn't get it sorted thus far is mainly because of fear. Two fears, actually.

"One, my fear of operations. Two, in case it was - yeah - worst case scenario.

"Of course I did try to get it sorted last year, early last year, but - erm - we all know what happened, don't we?

"Anyway, after the lockdown happened I went to get all the tests done and everything - it is benign."

He continued: "Also, by some miracle I am a very healthy human being. I don't know how.

"And, as for my fear of operations - yes - this is going in 10 days, so on the 14 January I'm finally getting my operation done."

However, as of the latest update, it appears that the January 14 date didn't eventually happen. Zee's Twitter bio still reads: "What is it? Pleomorphic Adenoma. When's surgery? TBC. Hard or squishy? Yes."

So, we'll have to wait and see what happens with it.

However, it does seem as if he's received some answers, given that in the first video, he said: "As for what it is, I have no idea. Even though I've for a biopsy I'm still waiting for the results. It's been about a month and a half now.

"But, as they say in the NHS, no news is good news.

"So, yeah, only 10 days to go."

Well, even though that 10 day deadline has passed, we can only hope that he gets everything sorted out in good order and manages to remove 'Frank' from the side of his head, and his life.
