Her physician reassured her that the lump was simply a lymph node. The mound of flesh continued to worry Twiggs, however. Over the years, she consequently sought the advice of a number of doctors. But they either told her that they didn’t know what it was or that it was harmless.
Twiggs found that hard to believe, though. As time passed, the lump grew bigger until finally it formed a large mass on the side of her face. The lump subsequently began to affect Twiggs’ self-esteem.
“When it first appeared, no one noticed because it was just a small lump. Now if somebody sees it they gasp,” she told TV show The Doctors “I don’t like when the wind blows.”
