Lump in neck location

Common Questions and Answers about Lump in neck location


Avatar n tn I have had a painless lump in my neck for several years. It is on the left side in the same area where my lymph nodes typically swell up when I have a cold. It is behind the upper part of my jaw, below my ear. It is hard, painless (unless I press it rather hard), immovable and about an inch in size. I have had two doctors who have been aware of it, but dismissed it. The first one put me on antibiotics to make it go down, but they did not do anything.
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 n tn Dear misskaren: This lump could be many things. It is unlikely, in the location you describe, to be breast cancer. If the lump has been there 4 months, it needs to be evaluated by a physician. This is especially important if it is getting larger.
Avatar n tn Hi 23 y/o Female Just wonderinf If anyone has has the same thing I do. No one that feels it has ever felt anything like it before. It is a hard (bone hard) mass about 1cm under where my neck muscle meets the skull (the sternomastoid). It does not move at all nor does it hurt. It also has no give when i press it and feels like a bone. However I know there are no bones here..the only one in the area is the mastoid of the skull but it is below it. I noticed it about 8 months ago...
Avatar n tn 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.
Avatar m tn 2) I know that you guys don't always like to look at pictures, but since I have already gone to a doctor, would you kindly please look at my photo to see if the area I marked is actually the location of a supraclavicular node? My doctor tells me my lump is not in the location of that node because it's too high compared to the clavicle bone but a second opinion would really help. 3) If a lymph node was swollen in the case of a tumor, it would show up on the chest x-ray right?
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.
964695 tn?1247289633 a rare reoccuring boil in my groin area aswell sinilair to the one on my back..comes and goes. But my neck lump has never shrunk. So my main question is..."what exactly can cause this? is it possibly cancer? can it be removed? is it potentionally life threatening? and can it cause all my fatigue, sleep issues appetite ect? thank you very much for your time...
Avatar m tn 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.
Avatar f tn her blood-work came back clean, too. She was told that a lump in this location was not usually benign...quite scary too hear! An ultra sound left everyone still unsure of what it was, so now it is on to a biopsy and a surgeon...what do you think this could be? She is only 21 and has always been healthy...thankyou.

Avatar n tn I have a smaller lump in the top of my armpit ( if that location makes sense) it doesn't hurt nor is uncomfortable. But I worries me, I do have a cold so I'm not sure if it is a lymph node. What else could it be? Should I go see a doctor? And how should I ask my parents to see the doctor?
Avatar n tn I had a lump in the exact same location for years. It was just a cyst that I chose to ignore until a couple of years ago. I had a dermatologist remove it after another cyst I had in my back abscessed and became very painful. I didn't want to risk another experience like that so I had the cyst in my neck removed. If it doesn't grow or change you probably have nothing to worry about it, but if you want it removed you may want to see a dermatologist.
Avatar m tn 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.
Avatar n tn Lipomas occur in 1% of the population. They presumably arise from fat that may occur in the back, hips, neck or other parts in adults. An epidermal inclusion cyst is a sac like structure with skin debris inside. These types of swellings are usually not malignant. You should consult a surgeon for a proper diagnosis and treatment. The diagnosis is through physical findings. Sometimes a needle biopsy or a CT scan may be done to confirm the diagnosis or rule out any malignant changes.
Avatar m tn Hello, My wife has detected a lump below the skin in the armpit. She is 40 and has a mamogram 2 months ago. the test was clean, but because of th location of the lump i doubt that it was scanned. My wifes parents have both passed from cancer one from lung and the other from pancreas. The lump has been there for about three weeks and has recently become painfull the sensation that she has described is a burning when she lifts her arm.
Avatar n tn That something is wrong. However recently I discovered that I have a lump in my left breast, and it is VERY painful. Even to rub against something puts a lot of discomfort on me. After I found this I called and made an appt with my Dr. She did an exam on my breasts and confirmed that my left breast has a lump in it. She ordered me an ultra-sound, which I am having done on Tues, May 3rd. She told me that depending on what that shows, will determine the next steps to take. She said that the Dr.
Avatar n tn My doctor said the lymph nodes in my neck are palpable, but they are not growing and still very small. I have a large lump in my armpit as well, but a saw a surgeon and she felt that it was nothing to worry about.
Avatar m tn It hasn't grown, but I have since noticed that when I press on the muscles to either side of the lump, those muscles are unbelievably tense, and that tension is contributing to chronic pain in the muscles on the right side of my neck and shoulders. In addition, I often have numbness in the first three fingers of my right hand, soreness in my right forearm and bicep, and soreness in my right hip. These may all be unrelated, but my left side is not bothered by the same type of pain.
1896835 tn?1321576203 Hi, I went to the doctors as there was a noticeable lump under my neck (to the left) - been there for about 5 weeks now and got bigger. He claimed it was a cyst that needed to be removed. I went for an ultrasound and they were able to completely rule out a cyst and in actual fact ended up discovering an enlarged lymph node.
822438 tn?1238522173 I have had a lump in the left side of my neck for about 2 or so weeks. It seems to be changing....kind of seems like it is elongating. It is located in middle of throat sort of by or on my carotid artery area. There is no pain associated, nor have I been ill. I was seen yesterday and then sent to have a CT scan done. The CT came back normal, but that is all I got out of the doctor's office...a call that said it was normal. So what I want to know is what this is.
Avatar n tn Hi, How are you? The lump could be musculoskeletal or superficial in location. Imaging studies such as X-ray is a god start in evaluating the lump and determining the location. Depending on the result, your doctor or healthcare provider will layout the management plan. Take care and do keep us posted.
Avatar n tn On Sep 28 which was my birthday I woke up feeling a lump in my left breast.I've done a self breast exam on both my breast but the found nothing in the right. My left breast felt a little tender also I'm a little worried even though it doesn't run in my family. I'm unable to go to the doctor to get an exam done because I'm unemployed and that amount of money given to me can do but so much.
Avatar m tn My dad will not go to the doctor at all so I'm trying to get info to determine if I should be concerned or let the matter go. He has a large irregular shaped (like a bag full of marbles) protruding lump approximately 2" in diameter that seems to be getting larger, not smaller. It was fairly slow growing--took months to appear. He says it isn't very painful. There is no skin discoloration of any kind. It is moveable and a combination of hard and soft.
Avatar n tn For the past 3 months, I have felt the sensation that a pill is stuck in my throat when I swallow. The location may vary as well as the intensity. Sometimes the feeling goes away for a short while, but comes back. I have no sore throat at all.I keep swallowing to try to get the feeling to go away, but it doesn't. I went to see a local ENT doctor. He looked down my throat with a light and didn't see much. The vocal cords were fine also. He prescribed amoxicillin 500 mg 2 times daily.
