Our expert says:
I'm really pleased that you are serious about seeing your doctor - this is important to get checked out. You need to remember that the doctor knows how the body works, and therefore will not misinterpret bodily reflexes - it does not mean anything other than your body is working well (just like if a doctor put a speculum on my tongue I might gag - it doesn't mean I think he's gross...it just means my gag reflex is sensitive). So don't worry about a thing, including explaining yourself. It may not happen given your nerves, but if it does, the doctor knows it doesn't mean anything, the main thing is that you get this lump checked out!
