There is something movable on my neck do not know if its a lump, cyst or lipoma but let me tell you it is very hard to grab it and it’s freely movable very easily. It’s been there since I don’t know for how long but I noticed it 2 months ago, I don’t think it changed in size. I have no other symptom no night s. or itching but fatigue due to the lack of sleep. I’m 17 years old. I’m not really worried but I wanna know what do u THINK it is?

Thank you for asking at Ehealth forum!

I read your question and i understand your concern. Movable lump on neck is usually benign, it could be a swollen lymph node , a soft tissue mass like lipoma or some other cyst. needs evaluation and management accordingly.

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.

Take care
