Bump On Left Side of Neck Causing Terrible Headaches

Hello! About 3 weeks ago I found a tiny bump the size of a little pimple on the leftside of my neck, about a 1/2 inch below my hairline. I did not think anything of it, till about a week ago I started having shooting pains from the area through the left side of my head causing terrible headaches. It has also grown from a tiny pimple size to a pea size. I just want some suggestions to what this could possibly be, and if I need to see my doctor.

Thank You

I a having the very same issue. The bump is on the back of my neck on the left side near the hair line, It is causing me a shooting pain up thay side of my head and also causing neck & shoulder pain every time I touch it. It is still pimple size though. I would love to know the answer as well. Thank you.

Migraines preceded by pimple on back of neck at hairline
I've been having migraines off and on for years, and invariably they are preceded by a small pimple on the left side, back of my neck right at the hairline!?! Anyone know why this might be?
