Lump in back of shoulders swollen lymph node?

About 6 months ago I found a lump in the upper back of my left shoulder near the base of my neck. Thought it was swollen lymph node and would go away. I have recently found two more. One right next to the first one and the other is on the opposite shoulder. Any ideas on what's going on? Should I see my doctor?

Thank you for asking at Ehealth forum!

I read your question and i understand your concern. These still could be benign lymph node swelling but no harm in gettign complete clinical correlation for peace of mind.

I hope it helps. Stay in touch with your healthcare provider for further guidance as our answers are just for education and counselling purposes and cannot be an alternative to actual visit to a doctor.
