Bumps under skin in neck

Common Questions and Answers about Bumps under skin in neck


Avatar n tn i need to know how I can get rid of these bumps under the skin around my neck. I've been to 2 dermatologists and they both said its "cysts" under the skin and nothing can be done to get of them unless they are infected. I have had one or two that was "poppable" and when squeezed a white string tissue came out. After it healed, the skin was flat again. Should i use a needle and poke every single one to release that white string tissue? will a shot of cortisone work?
210459 tn?1197085792 I can move it from under my jaw, around the other side, and up a bit. It is not in my skin...it is in the neck cavity, below the skin and tissue. I dont think a lymph node or gland as I do not believe such structures are round or can move so freely. Also, I am under the impression that cancers tend to be attached to tissue, are largely stationary, and tend to grow. Any ideas? I have posted something about this on the board, but no one has responded. Please give me any suggestions.
1143036 tn?1293034684 My daughter has a significant amount of bumps under her skin on her head and down her jaw. When you run your knuckle on them they move. When they are big or there are a lot of them she gets a really bad headache. Her Chiari surgeon does not have anyone else with them so I am asking if any of you do. He thinks they may be blood vessels. She had surgery in Oct 09 and has been feeling much better but the "head poppies" as we call them seem to be getting worse.
Avatar n tn It is more likely to occur on the neck and upper chest, in the groin, under the breasts, and in elbow creases. The best treatment for heat rash is to provide a cooler, less humid environment. Continue using your sunscreen. Drinking plenty of fluids and keeping the affected area clean and dry may also help. If it persists, it would be best to see your doctor for further evaluation and management. Take care and keep us posted.
Avatar n tn My dad has large bumps under his skin on his back. They have been there for years and when my mom squeezes them yellowish white stuff comes out and it stinks very badly. He says they hurt but after she squeezes the stuff out it quits hurting but it always comes back. I was wondering what this could be.
Avatar n tn Only on the palms of my hands at the creases on the skin, elbows, a few around the heels and ball of my feet, and scrotum. (So they are only on extremities). I haven't eaten anything odd lately, or used any unusual products or new things, so I don't think its an allergy to something unusual. The bumps are very faint, very under the skin, but itch real bad. What could this be in such unusual places, and what can I do about it? Thanks!
Avatar f tn I am a woman in my mid 50's and I have these small bump on my chest in between my breasts, and now I'm getting them under my breasts. I also have small raised bumps. Do you know what they can be, or how I can get rid of them, ther're also on my neck.
Avatar n tn Just like you, I also had those bumps in my thigh, jaw and recently in my neck. In my neck, i tried hot compress and it gets smaller... Those found in my thigh and jaw, they stayed there for years now. They didn't give me pain. The doctors, told me nothing to worry about. I was just told to increase my water intake. For your peace of mind, better consult an expert on the field. A dermatologist. EENT, or any physician who can diagnose you better. Regards.

Avatar f tn Is anyone skin breaking out? I'm getting bumps & they itch real bad. What does that mean?
Avatar n tn I have a hard, pea sized lump under the skin in my pubic area (less than 1/2 inch above clitoris and slightly to the left). It's not visible at all and can only be felt by touch - I first noticed it about 1 1/2 months ago. Went to my obgyn and she quickly told me it seems like an ingrown hair and I should put warm compresses on it. She even said it looked like a white head was coming up. Well, the compresses didn't work.
Avatar n tn I have small white bumps on my upper chest, neck, behind my ears, and tops of my shoulders. They come and go and I have treaded it with steroid creams and ketoconozal. While I was taking the ketoconozal I had no bumps but once I stopped the medication the bumps returned. I have been to a dermatologist and a GP with no help. I was initially being treated for a topical dermatitis under my arms that has cleared up.
1154937 tn?1262241976 I do not know if I am just looking for things and being a hypocondriac or if having those bumps under my skin actually mean hiv since I was at risk. Having those bumps just keep making me think I have swollen lymph nodes as a result of hiv. I guess I am just wondering what it could be since some people told me it can be nerve or muscle contractions because of how i sleep and to wait and see if they grow in size or hurt to then go to the doctor. They have not grown or hurt though.
Avatar m tn Parasites in the body that is the answer to crawling under skin sensation.What is needed is a detox to get rid of these. I would suggest researching.
Avatar m tn I also have these small bumps on my skin. They are in the neck area right under my jaw line. I went to a dermatologist and he said they are probably flat worts. I read that bumps near the head are a sign of sarcoidosis. I have a probably 10 in a 1 1/2in area. They are the same color as my skin. I'm going in for an EKG tomorrow because I almost fainted while doing light cardio two weeks ago. Could the bumps be related to sarcoidosis? How do I bring this up to my doctor.
Avatar n tn My husband has a bump in his head that travels down his neck, it's like one long bump that starts at the head endind on the neck it seems to be under the skin. Thre are no red marks or any thing you have to feel with your hand and he says it's painful. Could you please tell me what you think it might be it will be very helpful for us to get some type of insight. This discussion is related to <a href='http://www.medhelp.org/posts/show/242570'>bumps on head</a>.
Avatar f tn My husband has lumps under his skin along his back his arms and his legs it like they move all along his body they fill like big bumps but they under the skin if anybody knows what this might sound like please respond because I tell him to go to the doctor. He says he will but he keep putting it off please.
Avatar n tn Is it normal to have small, hard, just slightly smaller than pea sized bumps in this area of the neck? Or is it a good chance of being cancer? I will ask my Dr this week, but I am hoping to get some peace of mind until then. Thanks.
Avatar m tn What happens is I'll first feel a bump or two on my face or neck. They're under-the-skin, non-itchy, painless, skin-colored bumps that swell when I touch (or, guilty, pick!) them and also begin to spread to a cluster. I don't think they're pimples - from what I know, cysts are painful and movable, which these are neither of. They also never come to the surface and I don't think they're puss filled.
Avatar m tn Doc, I have had these small white bumps that look like white heads on my neck for a couple months, i thought they were white heads, but they dont go away, people have said they are ingrown hairs but everything iv tried for that hasnt worked. They came after shaving one time, they are in a small patch under my chin, they wont pop and they arekind of hard. Any help pleeease?
Avatar n tn sunday I started itching under my ears and on my neck and yesterday I found little bumps under my ears sounding somewhat similar to the description yall gave. at first I thought it was the cloths because they were new so I took it off but today I woke up itching and I started feeling itchy on my back as well. the bumps are only red when I itch them.
Avatar f tn I tried to remove one with tweezers, and it was very tacky (as in sticky) and clearly goes deep under the skin. Part of it broke off but I could still see that the pore was plugged and a day or two later top of the plug was sticking out again. i can't find ANYTHING online that looks like it.
Avatar f tn With so very many types of lumps/bumps dogs can get I would make an app. for the vet. They may just do a needle aspiration/biopsy in the office to see what type of fluid is in there and go from there. They also get hematoma's.... blood filled "pillows" so to speak. But these are generally on the ears. Could she have possibly gotten "hit" in that area? Like running around playing rough and ran into something? And maybe it's just a swollen muscle? So many possibilities.......
Avatar n tn LIPOMA -LARGE Large lipoma on the back Lipomas typically feel soft and can be felt to move slightly under your skin when you press on them. Lipomas under the skin are the most common Lipomas often form in the fatty tissue under the skin. These are also the most noticeable ones, as they look and feel like soft, dome-shaped lumps under the skin. They vary in size from pea-sized to several centimetres in diameter.
Avatar n tn The lump is about the size of a wall-nut. It is not painful, and very hard. It is under the skin, unlike a pimple. I went to the doctors, and he seems told me it was nothing to worry about, and that it was most likely a swollon gland. However I have never had a swollon gland in that location, and its not painful. Am I looking to much into this? Something just doesn't feel right about this..... Otherwise, i'm a perfectly healthy individual, rarely sick. Thank you very much, Matthew.
Avatar f tn These are not raised bumps above the skin but under looking more like tiny glands under the skin but its' appearance is dramatized above the surface with makeup. I've looked everywhere online for similar pictures and symptoms but didn't find any. I have fairly medium skin and can get really dark in the summer, so it's not due to fair skin. What has caused this, what IS IT and what can I do about it??? I've read about laser treatment for a variety of vague undereye problems. any home remedies?
Avatar m tn In any event, we washed everything in hot water and spent the night in another room. But the bumps kept spreading. - Poison Ivy/sumac: She remembers pulling a weed over the weekend while I was around. She has a "streaky" patch of bumps, but I do not. Action taken: scrubbed with a cream to remove usuhiol. Bumps keep appearing. Possible that some oil is still on our clothes/sheets though.
