Common Questions and Answers about Lump in neck diagnosis


Avatar f tn I was born with a small lump toward the lower end of my neck in the front. it doesnt cause me any pain but i am constantly asked if it is related to thyroid or fibromitosis. Both of these terms scare me, i guess my question is that over the last two years its almost tripled in size. I am starting to worry. I have no insurance and am low income. Does anyone have an idea what this could be? concerned and confused.....
Avatar n tn I have a firmed hard lump in the back of my neck behind the ear under the skull bone. I can feel that it is starting to affect my left ear. The doctors thought it was a sweelling gland but is not. The lump is very firm. What could possibly be? One of the doctor's think is a bone grown.

Avatar m tn My Dad is a healthy 68 year old with no chronic diseases. He has had a lump in his lower front neck, about an inch left of center for about 2 months. The lump seems almost cyst like, it is bigger than a marble, maybe twice the size of a marble. He can move it around without too much effort, its pliable, its not fixed per se, but it doesn't appear dermatological, meaning there is no redness on the skin or anything. It doesn't hurt at all, is pliable, movable.

Avatar n tn 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.
Avatar n tn I have recently come across a small lump in the right side of my neck located just past the halfway point of my neck and slightly towards the back (behind my ear as opposed to in front of it). The lump is not painful, hard, and I can move it slightly up and down, and it's not round more of and oval shape. I don't smoke or drink, I am however tired all the time.
1846821 tn?1321139438 I suffer from daily headaches that are mostly in the back of my head and effected by my position, lump in my throat that sometimes feels like it is choking me, vertigo, ear fullness and ringing in ears, I have holes in my ear drums and bubbles on the ear drum, I frequently hear/feel bubbles roll up my neck and into my skull, slight clumsiness and difficultly feeling out of sorts in my mind from time to time.
Avatar n tn They presumably arise from fat that may occur in the back, hips, or neck in adults. These types of swellings are usually not malignant. Most of these are small subcutaneous in location and are removed for cosmetic reasons. The treatment of cysts involves complete surgical excision with the capsule to prevent local recurrence. The therapy depends on the location and diagnosis of the swelling.
Avatar f tn 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?
Avatar n tn 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.
1242672 tn?1268365061 Most likely, your symptoms may be due nerve irritation in the cervical (neck) spine because of injury or prolapse due to neck lump where contact between the edges of the vertebrae can cause neck pain. In few people, this pain may be referred and perceived as occurring in the back of head, shoulders, arms or chest, rather than just the neck. Other symptoms may include vertigo, nausea (dizziness) that you felt. Other symptoms are like neck pain and stiffness can be intermittent.
Avatar n tn Hello, I have had this hard lump on my neck for like 4 years now, i noticed it when i was 17 and went to the doctor to get it checked out but he didnt really tell me anything changing the subject to my weight cuss i am 5"11 280 pounds. Anyway after a expensive pointless visit i decited to ignore it, im 21 now i have no medical insurance and cant afford to go to the doctor's for anything so i have to rely on the internet.
Avatar m tn I've had an increase in small moles on my neck, including one where the lump is located. I'm only twenty, so what are the chances that it's cancer?. P.s. I don't have insurance and im unemployed, so I can't just get up and go to the doctor. Also, just behind my ear is a lump that is also tender, but much smaller. Each appeared only days ago.
Avatar n tn The symptoms of lump in the throat and burning sensation in your throat are most likely due to GERD. The pain in the neck and back could be due to stress and anxiety. Please relax. Make sure you eat your dinner 2 hr before bedtime. Eat healthy and drink plenty of water. If symptoms do not improve please consult a gastroenterologist. Take care!
Avatar f tn About a month ago I discovered a lump in my neck. It is hard as a rock, doesn't move. It doesn't hurt or itch. It's in the back of my neck (lower part), close to my spine. It's about the size of a bean. Also, I've been tons of other symtoms, I don't know if they are related to the lump.
Avatar f tn Hi, I have had a grape size lump in my neck for a number of years now. Its on the top right hand side of the neck, under the corner of jaw bone, right in the corner of the neck. I always thought it was a swollen gland and didnt think anything of it until i googled it and now anxiety has set in. It cant be seen but can be easily felt just by lightly touching the skin.
210459 tn?1197085792 I have had a lump in my neck for 7 years. I have buried my head about it till now afraid of what it may be. The lump is non painfull and about the size of a marble. It is slightly visible and protrudes maybe a tenth of an inch from neck. it has grown very slightly in the seven years. The lump is hard and mobile under skin. it feels like its attached to the skin underneath. the skin over it is normal colored. it is located directly in the middle front of neck just beneath my adams apple.
1851642 tn?1319591796 I have this lump on the back of my neck, I've always had it, but not when I was a very young child. When I touch it, I can feel that it corresponds with my spine. Is there a way to get rid of it? Would it help to improve my posture or start sitting up straight?
Avatar n tn The vets aren't acting as fast as I'd like and Dixie, in the meantime, has to get by in her condition and I'm left to cry and pray. I want them to go in and remove this thing but they act like they don’t want to. I'm hoping or some freak infection or something but my gut is telling me cancer. What do you think?? Thanks for taking the time to read my long story and replying.
Avatar n tn i have an egg shaped lump in the back of the neck. movement is painfull, and causes snaps and pops that sound like gravel. any ideas?
Avatar n tn Hello, I have a couple of small lumps in my neck. One of them has been there for awhile and my doctor thought it was a lymph node that didn't shrink down after being inflamed. I have developed a second lump on the other side of my neck that is about the size of a pea and is a little firmer than the first one. I don't have any colds or obvious infections that would cause this. I am an avid weight lifter and workout 5 days a week (have been doing this for over 10 years consistently).
Avatar m tn Hello, A clinical examination is very necessary for correct diagnosis and management. It could possibly be a harmless condition known as pearly penile papules which appear as tiny white bumps circling the neck or middle area of the penis.Another possibility is that it Fordyce’s spots which are small yellowish or white spots on head of penis.Burning sensation during urination could possibly indicate that it is either a boil or an infected hair follicle.
Avatar n tn So you can see this when you look inside your mouth in mirror? In kids, swolllen lymph nodes are not uncommon. In adults, it's a different story. Anything that has been there for that long needs to be looked into.
