lump

I noticed this weekend a big lump in neck between adams apple and base of neck; the lump moves when i swallow - went to er and it said swollen cartilage - i'm not comfortable with this diagnosis. Anyone else experienced this? thanks.
The elbows does not sound like lymphoma and neither does the change in bowel movements. In fact unless you had cancer in your bowel area I have never heard or read of this being a symptom. I am curious as to where you heard this.
I went to the doctor who just told me it is most likely viral and if I didnt feel any better in a couple of weeks to come back. I feel better than I was but I still have this lump on my neck. From looking on the net it looks to be posterior cervical lymph node. Its only about 2cm. It doesnt hurt at all. Its been a month since its been there. Would it be worth going back to the doctor to check it out or does it just take a while for it to go down?
Enlarged (but a lot smaller than the lump below my clavicle) Hard Painless Moves when I touch it (the lump below my clavicle doesn't) I'm not sick or anything. No fever, chills, night sweats, loss of appetite etc. I just get headaches, but I have had migraines since I was little so it's normal to me. So I'm not sure if I should be more or less worried! I really just want to find out what this is! CT scan should show it since they are doing my left clavicle and neck.
I'm 23, and I just discovered a small lump on my neck below my ear, behind my jaw. It's only on the left side, and it's very hard. At the end of October, I went to the health center at my law school for an on and off fever, weight loss, and other miscellaneous symptoms. They did the mono blood test and I was positive. I seemed to get through it pretty easily, though my throat was miserable for 2 weeks or so and I was exhausted for those two weeks as well.
I had a severe head cold 2 weeks ago, one night I noticed a lump on my neck, right a the base of the neck on, beginning of the spine. It does not hurt me. It's a soft mass, however at times it feels as if it burns inside of me. Not a pinching feeling but a burn sensation. When I get aggervated it seems to flare. Question #1 what type of doctor do I see for this? Question #2 : Is this something of much concern? Thank you.
i was just sitting here and i touched my ear and i felt a lump behind my ear on my neck...im very worried what could this be.....my neck has been hurting like i pulled it but that was on the other side. the lump doesnt hurt when i touch it or press on it...
Hi, My son (now 7) had these lumps in his neck and groin - small, moved around, pretty much like the one you described. We have Hogkins disease in the famaily, so the surgeon removed them to send for hystology. It turned out that he has an "over active immune system" and although he didn't seem ill, his body thought he was. Apparently you need to worry if the lump grows, causes pain or become immoveable.
The lump tends to hurt twice as bad if I turn my head to the right..also my head and neck feel warm as if a slight fever has set in..Im taking left over ibprofen 800mg thinking it may reduce the swelling. Has not done so. Alveave also has no effect on the pain. The more I think, the more worried I become. Also im noticing constant mucus in my lungs( i also had both lungs collapse last year so that may not be envolved with the lump)...
I have a small lump on my neck, it is on the right side about halfway up. It is quite small, probably not much bigger than a pea and it feels like it is located on the neck muscle (of course I suppose it could be behind it and pushing the muscle, I am not qualified to say but I don’t think so). I have played sport before and it feels to me exactly like the kind of scar tissue you can get after a pulled muscle.
Hey im a 19 year old girl and i recently have been ill with suspected glandular fever. I have just found a hard lump about the size of a small pea in the crease of my neck and head. It doesn't hurt to touch and causes no discomfort. I also have the same sort of lump on the roof om my mouth. Are these glands?? or are they to hard to be glands and could be something else??
Just as I am about to go back to the doctor the fever goes away. This time, the fever is low in the AM and higher in the evening? Thanks for any comments. This discussion is related to <a href='http://www.medhelp.org/posts/show/228142'>7 year old son with recurring fever</a>.
) and he discovered a small lump in my neck that he thought could be either a carotid body tumor or a swollen lymph node. He ordered a carotid ultrasound and a CT soft tissue. The ultrasound examined the lump and defined it as 1.3cm wide x 7mm deep and determined it was likely a lymph node. The CT found "all lymph nodes and cervical spaces are more numerous than typically seen but none meet the criteria for enlargement.
Father had some cancer in his neck/throat, Grandfather had skin cancer 2 years ago I felt a lump in my neck, it was checked out and said to be an enlarged lymph node, it is still enlarged up to now. 3 month ago I felt another lump this time right below my ear on the jaw line, checked again and doctor said it was englarged lymph node Blood tests revealed no lymphoma About 2 months ago I felt a lump in my check near my lower jaw line.
Okay in September I noticed a sort of oval shaped lump on my lymph node on my neck, it's about an inch or slightly over and painless. I went to two different doctors one of which put me on some strong antibiotics to see if it responded to it incase it was an infection and the other one said not to worry about it and only come back if it got bigger.. which it is (just slightly).
, no pain swallowing, but an irregular feeling like a lump or abrasion) WITH what seemed to be salivary gland pain, two (first tender, then hard) lymph glands in neck, and pain/throb in armpit, groin, and femoral region (no noticed lumps except swollen pain in groin while on Augmentin) and ear pain. I will say that I have chewed tobacco or smoked cigarettes for approx. 14 years.
Sore neck - my glands are swollen and my neck is actually sore to touch, it hurts to turn my head and when I yawn, cough or sneeze I get a sharp pain in my neck. 2. I have pressure in my ears, my neck, my mouth and my face. 3. I have intermittent feelings of a low-grade fever. They told me I had a sinue infection and gave me a decongestant (can't remember the name) and amoxycillin.
Fast forward a year and I am still not the same person.The lump in my ear/neck area is constantly tender and painful. The majority of the time I have an earache. This has been causing me discomfort and pain now for a year! I feel dismissed by the doctor I saw and cannot afford to keep going back without results. I need a direction or suggestions as to what to do next. I am losing sleep over this and feel an urgency to press on. I am a female, age 42, 5;3", 135 lbs.Thank you.
I feel worse, weight loss and now have developed a lump at the top of my spine and neck, also on my jaw just in front of my ear on the right. The areas feel hot when touched but yet my temperature is normal when taken. Tingling feeling on my thyroid, dizzy spells and often feel cold and chilly. Full Blood count was done - shoed normal. I am awating the outcome of tests done for Multiple Myeloma. Not sure is this the Epstein Barr again, thyroid or Chronic Fatigue Syndrome.
Exactly two weeks after this, I experienced pain in the left side of the back of my neck followed by a lump (a swollen gland) of the size of a marble. This lump (confirmed by my doctor) was located in the left side of my neck and went away within a few days. My questions 1) Should I have washed my penis before puting the condom on to have sex? Or regardless of this you would agree this was a low risk situation? 2) The lump in the neck is what scares me the most.
Last week, I started to feel the pain in my front lower neck. I can feel a lump on my front neck on the left. It hurts when I swallow. Sometimes the pain traveled through the back of my left ear. I feel like something is stuck in my throat. I did not have a fever. Sometimes I feel hot but when I took my temperature, it was normal around 98.6 F. My voice changes sometimes. My voice sounds hoarse when I just woke up. Is it thyroid cancer or hyperthyroidism?
I have also discovered a lump in my neck right behind my ear and by my jaw line. It doesn't move and it isn't painful but I'm very concerned about it. I've been gaining weight and have been extremely fatigued. I just moved to Florida and don't have a doctor yet. Do you think I should have it checked at an urgent care or hospital? Does anyone know what it could possibly be?

I have a lump behind my neck under hairline and another one on my cheek.. They are not painful. I found the one on my neck while I was showering while the other one was when i was scratching my face. I found them two months ago. they didn't change in size or appearance. I want to know what is wrong with me. I'm getting really worried now. Should i ask my mom to make an appointment with my pediatrician?? I'm 17 by the way.. I have a history of urinary tract infection..
I noticed there is a small lump on the left side on the back of my neck, just below my hairline. I would say the lump is quite hard and when I press it there is some discomfort, it's not painful, just uncomfortable. In the surrounding area of my neck it's also uncomfortable when I press down and there is another one of these type of lumps/spots lower down. At first I just thought they were normal spots/lumps as I get acne/spots on my face and the back of my neck and lower neck area.
I've had a lump on my neck for a round 2-3 years. It's very small and I can move it around when I touch it and doesn't hurt. I also found a very hard lump behind my ear and it doesn't hurt when touched either. I've gone to several doctors and they tell me it's just an enlarged lymph node. My mom tells me the neck lump might be from a very bad throat infection I had when I was around 12. I've had blood tests done and everything is fine.
Lymph nodes are found all throughout the body, but with Lymphoma and Leukemia it is more often seen in the lymph nodes found in the neck, collar bone, armpits, and groin areas...usually. My lymphoma was found in my breast, which is quite unusual. Blood tests and scans are helpful when trying to diagnose blood diseases, but they are only a small piece of the puzzle.
