Common Questions and Answers about Lump at side of neck


Avatar f tn Instead of giving the injections either in the scruff of the neck or in the large muscle of the hip, the protocols were changed to administer the injections in the leg. With the injections being given in the leg, if a cancerous tumor DID develop at the injection site, the leg could be amputated and the life of the animal could be saved.
Avatar n tn When I was pregnant with my son in 2007 I noticed a lump on the side of my neck (its right under my jaw line and isn't noticable by sight). I asked my OB about it and she said it was perfecty normal during pregnancy and didn't even check it out. Well I still have the lump and my son is now 19 months old. It doesn't seem to be getting bigger and isn't painful.
Avatar m tn Hi I have a small lump inside of the left side of my neck. When I lie down on my side, I can feel it and it moves around slightly. Just above it to the right, is another lump which is bigger. I've had these lumps for over two years now and they have not changed shape or size that I know of from just feeling them. They do become a little painful if I touch them too much. Can you tell me what you think these are?
Avatar m tn Hello all! So around august last year, I discovered a lump around the size of a nickel underneath the right side of my jaw. It doesn't protrude from the area, rather I need to puff out my throat to be able to feel it. At first I thought nothing of it and thought it was just an enlarged node as I compared it to the other side and it is relatively biggerIt's been almost one year, and it has still remained there, no change in shape and size.
Avatar m tn 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?
Avatar n tn Hello, Roughly a year ago a noticed a small lump on the side of my neck (about 4 in. below the ear). It is firm and the skin above it is has a normal coloring and texture and there are a couple hairs which grow from it. I once even had a pimple develop over it, likely from me toucing/plucking at the hairs. Since I first noticed it, I feel like I have noticed grown some and then retreat a bit, (but that could just have coincided with my irritating it).
Avatar m tn I thank everyone who participates in these forums, as guidance is very important. I noticed a small lump on the left side of my neck about two years ago. Unfortunately I dismissed and forgot about it for some time. I rediscovered the same lump about six months ago, and it has been on my mind ever since. In the last three or so months I have been experiencing pain on the same side of my neck, although the lump itself isn't sensitive.
Avatar n tn In January I found a small lump on the side of my dogs neck, it doesn't seem to be attached to any muscle, its just sort of under the skin and is about the size of a grain of rice and pretty hard but almost feels like it can be roled around but not far. I took her in to the vet about a week later and he checked it out and said just to watch it and that since it is small we will just wait to see if it starts bothering Bailey or if it grows bigger.
Avatar m tn Do you actually feel a circular or bean shaped lump come and go or is it the whole side of your neck that seems to swell off and on? Or both?
Avatar n tn Last night I noticed a lump on the back of my neck, on the right side, at the base of my skull. It's about the size of a penny and doesn't seem to be moving around or anything. It isn't real painful, only if I poke at it. I haven't had any visual issues, nor terrible headaches or nausea or anything. I had my family and a couple friends feel it and they all said it feels like a tension knot.
Avatar n tn It doesn't hurt, but does seem to itch at times. It is about the side of large marble. Is it possible for a disc to bulge in the neck? Wouldn't that have pain associated with it? Are there lymph nodes in the back of the neck? Any information would be much appreciated.
Avatar n tn 5 mm lump on the back of the left side of my neck. I recently had a mole removed and biopsied, but it was on the right side of my back. I had the dermatologist feel the lump, and he said it was probably a lymph node, but it was very small and moveable. He said it was nothing to worry about. I also had to recently (in the past week) visit the hematologist, because my PCP thinks I might have polythycemia vera.
Avatar m tn Hello. I have a lump on the back of my neck on the right side, beneath the skin. It's not really visible on the surface, but I can run my finger around the area and feel it. It feels about the size of a marble and it is hard. I have had it for a little over a year now(from when I first noticed anyway), and sometimes pain emanates from the area. Kind of a dull, aggravating pain. It's never tender and not painful to the touch, and diet seems to bring on the pain more often.
Avatar n tn About two years ago, while I was putting it up, I noticed a lump on the back of my neck. It is under my hair, almost at the hair line, on the left side of my neck on what feels like the left muscle of the spine, at the base of the skull. I hadn't thought of it in a while, but more recently I have been getting massive debilitating migraines. That's why I decided to ask a question here. It is about the size of a dime, maybe slightly smaller.
Avatar n tn I have a lump on the back of my neck (at my hairline to the right of my spinalcord) that has been there for almost 6 years. It is the size of a half dollar and feels hard to the touch, but can be moved around on the back of my neck. It rarely is ever painful unless i start to mess with it or i lay on that side of my neck for a long period of time. It has been about the same size for as long as i can remeber. My dad told me these cyst as he called it runs in the family.
Avatar f tn im a 23 yr old white female, this lump is on the back of my neck, right side, high up, near the spine and under or in the muscle. it is not a cyst or anything under the skin, it's definitely IN there and spreading,slowly, recently it's become bothersome, stiffness in neck, can't tilt my head that far to the right, and now starting to hurt my right ear, it feels swollen in there and it sounds like I have water in there/crackling stereo when I talk.
Avatar n tn Has she recently been in a fight, or been playing too hard with another dog, and could maybe have got a small puncture wound? Is the swelling at the side of her neck under her jaw, or at the sides? Does she seem lethargic (doesn't want to go for walks, wants to lay on her bed or sleep more?) Does she seem to be in pain? Is she eating OK? Does she seem to eat slower than before, or having any difficulty chewing her food? Is the swelling like a kind of lump?
Avatar f tn And is sore when I press it. This morning I woke up with a new lum at the back of my neck. It is on the right hand side of my spine facing my ear. It is extremly painful when I touch it. I had not paid much attention to it. But I noticed that at the day went by my right arm started getting numb. And a pain down started to run down my back. Now everytime i take a deep breath it hurts. Please could you let me know what it could be?
Avatar n tn I am major relieved and thanks japdip for your wisdom but I am still concerned with this pain and even more concerning is that my glands on that side of my neck are now swollen. My neck hurts when I palpate it and so does my armpit and forearm. I also realize we are dealing with some plugged lymph possibly but I wonder about the neck thing. I do think it will resolve once drained but I'm wondering if I should go up to ER today as I am a bit dizzy.
Avatar n tn I have two pea size lumps on the right side of my neck. One is about 1/2 way down my neck the other is just about 1/2 inch below that close to my colar bone felt more when i extend my neck back. At times the lumps feel larger and sometimes smaller. I also had a cough that is going away for about 2 weeks now which produced clear sputum at times. I also had my thyroid removed about 2 years ago. The lumps are both movable and not painful. Can this be some sort of cancer.
Avatar f tn Nodules? I have 2 protruding nodules that are quite visible to the eye. at bottom of neck. General practitioner examined by hand and concluded that that the right hand side lump, covers pretty much all of the thyroid gland, to the right, and the left hand side one , is smaller, but also visible to eye. What does the size of the nodule indicate? Because of it's external protrusion, is the size of such a nodule, a cause for concern?

Avatar f tn 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.
Avatar f tn I have a small lump on the right side of my neck. It is about the size of a pea. When i push on it my vision will get blurry. Any ideas on what this could be.
Avatar n tn I discovered a lump on the left side of my neck today. It is a bit painful to touch. Back on May30 I had an emergency appendectomy and developed an infection and was placed on antibiotics for 10 days. Do you think this could be related to the infection I developed? I am not sure if I should have it looked at or just wait and see if it goes away. I don't want to be paranoid about every little thing but.......Some advice would be helpful.
