Common Questions and Answers about Lump in neck of cat

lump

When I brought her to the vet they told me she had an ear infection and she was feeling the pain in her paw. She has been on an antibiotic and seems to be doing better, however the lump in her neck is getting bigger and bigger. I am trying to make her an appointment but they don't have any openings until December 4th. Does anyone know what this lump could be? I have tried to look it up online but have had no luck. PLEASE HELP.
However, on Friday morning while petting her, I found another lump on her neck, but this time in the centre of her shoulder blades. So the location has changed, approx an inch over from the last one. It appears to have reduced in size this morning, but not to a degree where I'm comfortable with thinking it's 'nothing'. I saw my vet Friday morning and they have given me a referral to see an oncologist.
- Most infections cause enlarged glands near the site of infection. But cat scratch on an arm, e.g., can cause enlarged nodes on the neck. - My guess is that you'll maybe have recurring minor ear problems whenever your immunity is down. Speaking of which, the stress caused by a betrayer can be enormous and that weakens immunity. It's primarily related to increased cortisol.
hi I have a lump on my neck and a low absolute Lymphocytes count my dr sent me for a cat scan today can u explain to me why she sent me for a cat scan and not a biopsy?
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.
About 5 days ago I noticed a small bean shaped lump on the side of my neck (not between the jagular and sternocelidomastoid muslce), but rather on the sternocleidomastoid muscle itself (I think). I consider myself a bit of a hypochondriac so naturally internet search will reveal the worst. All it takes is 1 negative to throw me off balance completely. I went to my GP and he said I might have lymphedema and sent me off to do a ultrasound of the neck followed by FNA.
i would go to the mayo clinic in minnesota or the cleveland clinic in cleveland
Hello, I feel a lump (~.5cm - 1cm in size) on the left back side of my neck (posterior cervical) whenever I turn my head to the left. I don't feel any lump when my neck muscles are relaxed and my head is positioned straight (i.e. when not turning my head). Is this an indicator of something serious inside my neck?
My cat - approx 12 year old male - has a lump on the back of his neck, between the shoulder blades. It has gradually grown in size over the past 4 months. It is soft, liquid filled - the skin covering it is stretched and transparent looking. It doesn't seem to cause him pain. Yesterday, when the lump was at about the size of half a golf ball, it burst, realeasing a clear liquid. We cleaned it out, but today it appears to be refilling again, quite rapidly. What could this be? Thanks.
The thyroid gland may also produce a lump, multiple lumps, or swelling in the neck as a result of thyroid disease or malignancy. Most cancers of the thyroid gland are extremely slow growing and often curable by surgery even if they have been present for several years.
I'm 24 years old female, and since I was four I've had a small lump on the side of my neck. Whenever I get sick the side of my neck where the lump is gets very swollen. I've been tested for Mumps and had an ultrasound for the lump, but doctors told me they found nothing. They recommended I get a cat scan in case it was a tumor or something serious, but it never really seemed that serious to me or my parents so I told them to ignore it. Recently I was sick with nasal congestion and a cough.
So I found this lump on the front of my neck early this week. It is slightly offset to the right but mainly in the front and at the base of my neck. Just above my collarbone. I went to the doctor and they gave me a strep test and also a mono test and they both came back negative. I have had a low fever, I have been very tired and this lump is just sitting there.
Im 16 years old and I have found a lump under my arm pit, I lost both grandparents to cancer so in the back of my mind im worried it could be some sort of cancer.

My cat has a lump on the side of her neck and the vet said it was a swollen salivary gland. It has increased in size by 60% since the diagnosis. Does anyone know what this means? Can a cat die from this? How can it be treated? Vet said the surgery is too risky since it's so close to the jugular. Help!!! Any info is much appreciated.
My 11 yr old son received 4 shots on Friday afternoon (Td/Tdap, Hep A, Varicella, Meningitis). After a shower 24 hours later he had a painful lump and swelling in his armpit. It is now just over 48 hours after getting the shot and it is not getting any better. I just want to check to see if this allergic reaction or pain and swelling is a common side effect of at least one of these shots. Because of the timing of the soreness my husband and I feel it is related but not sure if it needs a dr.

I have had a lump in my neck on the left side by my carotid artery for several years. It came up in 2005. I seen an ENT several times. They did a biopsy and hit my artery. My face wet into Bells Pausy for several days. I never felt confident that they got the right tissue sample. The ENT said it was fine and everything bad gets bigger and not to worry about it. I then went to another ENT in 2008 I had a cat scan and he said it didn't seem to be aything to worry about either.
and then a cancer scare of Lymphoma...i ended up having lymph node surgery on my neck for that lump...thank GOD it was not CANCER BUT a lymph node full of bacteria due to the 'scratch' of that lil kitty.. so, if i were YOU, do go to the Dr and watch out for any other symptoms ok...just as a precaution..cause cats do carry some viruses in their claws.. DO TAKE CARE PLEASE..
I have been given a new antibiotic (Bactrim) but no improvement, still. The lump has nearly doubled in size at least and is very hard and does not move much. If I move my head to quick, it pulls and hurts really bad. The headaches that have come along with it has gotten more intense and more frequent. My neck is also somewhat stiff. And as if that wasn't enough, I can't seem to keep my eyes open for very long...I am just sooo tired which is not normal for me.
When I had the cold it was a bit difficult to breathe, but that has passed A week ago I got scratched by my cat (which made me think of cat scratch disease) I have experienced fatigue (but this has happened to me for as long as I can remember on and off throughout my life so it seems normal to me) I'm 20, short and skinny, my aunt had hogdkins, my dad once had a swollen lymph node, and thats all of the related history I can think of right now.
I had a friend who had cat scratch and it was an actual lump on his neck. A herx reaction is different in each person so I can only speak for myself. It usually hits me about 5 days into treatment.
I also get occasional pain in the back of the neck. I get a lot of inflamation now...under my right arm...my neck...my cheek even down to my entrie right side inflamation increases depending on what I eat. I am currently taking Omega 3 supplements, magnesium, and vit B and am feeling better w/the inflamation subsiding. I have had such a long road..with this pain...living with it. I've had tried many RX and couldn't handle the stuff....the Omega's are really working well....
Seem's that none of my doctors no what is and I am concerned,a cat scan revealde some swelling in the lymph nodes but no one seems concerned. what's a girl to do? all of my blood work is fine and the only other change I have noticed is bone pain in the area and weakness. I have this feeling that something is not right but no one hears me.
