Avatar m tn Hi. I noticed a small lump on the side of my neck today, under my skin. My smoking recently picked up, after getting a construction job, so the lump is really freaking me out. I know I have to go to see a doctor, but am uncomfortable going to my family doctor. Does anyone know if walk in clinics can get the job done? I'm not sure if they'll have all the equipment necessary to check.
155639 tn?1251742203 Hello, My dog, Nugent, male Lab/Sheppard Mix, 8 years old. 3 1/2 weeks ago underwent surgery to remove 5 lipomas from belly, one lipoma was very large and grew around ribs. Vet spent some time to make sure he removed it all. Per vet, these were not canerous and were lipomas. Nugent recovered and was fine. Fast for to Friday, May 9th. Came home and went to feed my 2 dogs. Noticed that Nugent had what appeared as "extra skin" hanging down from his neck under his collar.
Avatar n tn Hi I need some help . I have a lump on my left side of my shoulder between my neck and shoulder and it's not to big or small and it's under my skin and moves around. Is it something to be worried about ?

210459 tn?1197085792 I can move it from under my jaw, around the other side, and up a bit. It is not in my 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.
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 I have a lump in the back left side of my neck it does not move around and feels fixed under the skin, I have had it every since I can remember I am now 24 recently my shoulders and neck are always sore and hurt for about two years now I've dealt with back shoulder and neck pain, recently the lump feels more noticable and is sore somewhat. Im not sure if its sore do to the last couple days I've really been picking with it! Can anyone give me a word of advice?
Avatar n tn I noticed the last day or so my dogs skin seem to be drooping like a double chin under his jaw an when I was petting him I noticed a hard lump just below his jaw in his neck. Now it seems his whole right side is swollen and now his eyelid is swollen an our vet cant see him till next week. He is a Minnature Pinscher four years old.
143952 tn?1237868141 Hi - I've had a very small lump in the back of my neck for a few months now, since about July I think. It's about two inches from the base of the ear towards the middle of the neck and about 1/2 to 1 inch down from the hairline. Does anyone know which nodes those are - I've seen conflicting info from websites. And, how likely is it to be something serious? I don't think it's gotten much bigger than from I first discovered it, but the area seems more irritated now.
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 f tn I found a lump on the left side of my neck it's the size of a ten cent piece and im worrying please help!
Avatar n tn lumps that are visible or feelable in or just under the skin, which are not within the breast or in the neck itself are most likely to be pretty innocent. Possibilities include a sebaceous cyst which is a plugged oil gland, a lipoma which is a harmless fatty tumor; it's rare but not impossible to be something more serious, and since it wasn't there 4 months ago, it makes most sense to have it looked at.
Avatar n tn Today it is still there, and ironically I told my friend that I would like to go get this checked out, when he told me he had the same sort of lump under the skin, in the same exact area, which has been there for months. After rubbing my neck all around, I have found yet another one that is much smaller I can feel, that is just above my hairline on my neck. Can someone explain what these are, and what medical help I should seek? Thanks a lot.
Avatar n tn Hi i have a hard lump under my skin on the back of my neck almost where my head and neck meet. Its hard and about the size of a marble. can some one help me. it hads been here a while but seems to have gotten a little bigger. i do not smoke.
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 I have just notice a large lump on the side of my dogs neck just on the collar bone, it is the size of an egg but inside the skin, should I be more very worried or could this just be a gland.
Avatar n tn Well doesnt nodule mean outside the skin ? This is in my neck under the skin, its like a rock under you skin thats what i ment by sticking out.
