Two weeks ago I found a small (not even the size of a pea) lump on the back of my neck. About an inch to the right of my spine, and an inch below my hairline. It's kinda hard (I guess), doesn't move, and doesn't hurt. It literally popped up outta no where. I was afraid it was a swollen lymph node/gland, but haven't been sick. I don't have any infections, and I feel perfectly fine. Any ideas what this could be?? P.S. I'm only 21.

  • Hi thereIf it doesn't go away in a few days go see a doctor. You may need to see an ENT --ears nose throat doctor to get a proper diagnosis.Don't sit on this for too long if it doesn't go away in a few days.There are many causes of this but we would not want to miss dangerous causes while they are small.pberonhttp://breastcancertx.blogspot.com/
