I have a lump on my neck and I have no idea what it could be. You can't really see it on the outside, but if you press your fingers to it, you can feel it. It's not uncomfortable or painful, however if pressed, I hurts a tiny bit. Does anyone know what this could be?

Lump on my neck too
I have one too and looking at other sites have told me that if it is visable it could be a linf node (not sure on the spelling) but if it isnt visable you should get it checked by a doctor.

Hope i helped.

Lymph nodes
If you have one you had a recent flu or cold never mind it will go away, if is painful probably is an infection somewhere in your body if is not painful and do not goes away, you need a biopsy yesterday. You need to see your doctor now....

I'm the user ChoCho who posted earlier in this topic when I had the same problem, I did end up going to the doctor and found out it was a boil, and the doctor lanced it (cut it open) and drained it and prescribed me some antibiotics. It was VERY painful until after it was lanced and drained, but afterwards I felt almost completely fine.
I suggest going to a doctor, even if you're not sure if it's really serious. It could end up becoming more serious and it actually can be extremely painful sometimes.
Apparently the cause of this was from medication I was on that weakened my immune system, and when your immune system is weakened you are more likely to get boils.

Anyhow, I hope this helps someone out.

mumps
Behind you ear, could be mumps, ask your mom if you got the shots, stay at home, if you are a boy you can not go out, if you have any fever, let your mother knows about it. IF you are a boy be very careful stay in your bed and covered, tell your mother what you think that bump is and she has to take you to a doctor.

Hi, I just want to know if anyone might know some one in the same situation like mine... I have had a lump on my leftside of my kneck probably since I been 17yrold. I am know 25, Its never hurt, or grown. it never bother me at all, but i brought it up to a few people and they got overly concern, I tried to get it checked but you know like many people I am unensured and its kinda pricy to get it checked. So if you know anyone whos ever had a situation like mine a little info wouldn't hurt. I know every person is different but I just want info not a diagnostic! please! thanks

This may help
Hello,

I have the same kinda thing on the right side of the back of my neck close to my spine. If you can feel the edges of the lump it could be a cyst or a swollen lymph node.

If it is in those locations I URGE you to go see your doctor if it has been there for more than a week. You should see a doctor for any lump you find especially if it is close to your spine. Cysts arn't harmful but can be if they are close to your spine because they can press on it and cause neural problems. It is also very hard to remove from that area so the sooner you see a doctor the better!

The doctor will probably order an X-ray and ultrasound first. If nothing pops up he may order a CT scan or an MRI. This is what my doctor did atleast. I am waiting to have the CT scan to find what mine is.

I hope this information helps you.

neck pain, lump, pain
Ok, I am 15 years old.
i have been off school for about 4 days with the flu, (runny nose, cough, tempature, generally feeling like poo)
Well after about the 2nd day of me being ill, i noticed i had pain in my neck, but i didnt take any notice of it, because i thought it was from where i had slept awkwardly.
but then today the pain in my neck had gotten worse, i spread to my shoulder and caused headaches. i then felt around where most of the pain ws, and i found a lump in my neck, about the size of a ping pong ball,, maybe smaller.
its not noticable on the outside, but when i feel around it and press it,, its slightly painful, and obviously shouldnt be there.
im really worried about it as my great nanna had cancer in her neck and died from it Sad

i hope someone pays attention to me as it took along time to write this,,, HELP Sad

I've heard that some people can get that
when they have got a cold or something
and it's sucking the bad this into this lump and
when your cold goes the lump goes away.
Hope this helped but just to make
sure you should get it checked at the doc's.
