I have been having lumps in both sides of my neck(1 on my left side and 2 very small ones on my right side) for the past 20 years (since I was small) and I have no other symptoms. I went to see doctor about 10 years ago and I was cleared and asked not to worry about it. Nothing has changed since I found it 20 years ago, but recently, i found a small lumps (less than 5mm diameter) appearing near the lumps and I'm worried about it. Is it lipoma? Or is it something else? Can someone please advice? I would really appreciate that.

  • Have you had any blood work done? It is very unlikely it is lymphoma if you are not experiencing any symptoms. My recommendation is to find a new doctor and have him exame your lumps. I would also ask him to run blood work and possibly a biopsy.
