My mother (in her early 50s) has a lump on her neck that appeared around 6 month ago.
She saw various doctors and also was subjected to blood tests which all were ok.
She then had an ultra sound that revealed that she has lumps in her neck.
The lumps are also visible outside.
I attached a photo of her neck. Two lines that go vertically on her neck were not there 6 months ago.

The lump is painless but it is growing.

Initially the operation was suggested to test for cancer but now the doctor dismissed it and suggests that it is due to her weight.

But I do not believe it!!!

She had more weight in the past and no lumps.

If someone has a similiar development and know what it is and what she has to do, I would be very greatful!!!

Thank you in advance
