Lump in your neck

Common Questions and Answers about Lump in your neck


647554 tn?1227120082 Any lumps or changes in your body (voice hoarseness, etc) should be taken seriously and checked out, though they may not all be "serious". Have you seen a doctor for this. That would be your first step, then take it one thing at a time. Thyroid cancer is relatively rare, but highly curable. Thyroid nodules are very common, especially with Hashimoto's Thyroiditis, so you would need some basic thyroid tests to start with, along with an ultra sound.
Avatar n tn That lump you have is where the lymph nodes are, which will swell and be painful if you're fighting off infection. Your fever suggests that, too. So, I think it's a good thing that your immune system is perhaps working well enough to fight off your family's cold.
Avatar n tn I recently noticed a swollen lump in the right side of my neck about 2 inches below my ear. Saw a doctor, she said it was probably due to some infection...gave me antibiotics and said take these and see if it goes away. I have no symptoms of any infection. It's been 2 weeks and the lump is still there. I only have two other I salivate A LOT. 2...I am having a terrible problem with facial flushing. Any ideas on what it could be?
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 n tn If i was you i would be asking for a biopsy of this mass they have found in the right side of your neck, Especially to rule out the cause, we dont get masses for no true cause. Be adamant about this and dont be fobbed off for no-one. Explain about the family link of Lymphoma, and ask for your mass to be BIOPSIED. Good luck, and i hope you get some answers soon, for this problem. Let them know because of the family history, and you not knowing what it is . That this is causing you great stress.
Avatar n tn I noticed this weekend a big lump in neck between adams apple and base of neck; the lump moves when i swallow - went to er and it said swollen cartilage - i'm not comfortable with this diagnosis. Anyone else experienced this? thanks.
Avatar n tn Hi, How is your mother? There are many causes of neck lumps. This could be an enlarged lymph nodes or possible bacterial or viral infections. Lumps in the skin or just below the skin may also be due to cysts such as sebaceous cysts. If there was a previous infection, the lumps could be related. Have this evaluated further by your doctor for proper management. DIrect clinical examination and some tests may need to be done from proper diagnosis. Take care and best regards.

Avatar n tn MY doctor ran an antibodies test and it was really high my TSH was normal but I was developing a goiter in my neck. The reason I tell you this is you might be having the headaches due to your thryoid. Since I have been on medication for my thyroid my headaches are subsiding. It was like as soon as I started the medicine the headaches went away. You should't be scared to have the lump looked at. With the thyroid you can develop nodules most of the time they are not cancerous.
Avatar n tn Hi, can anyone help me with some advice on a lump in my neck. For the past 18months I've had a lump on my neck, just below my jawline about an inch from my ear. I have been to the doctors on 3 separate occasions to ask them what it can be and have been told it's "probably" my tonsil. Now, I understand that your tonsils swell when your ill but I've never been ill - no flu, coughs or colds.
Avatar n tn It would be advisable for you to consult a physician to check out the lump in your neck. Unless a diagnostic test/procedure has been done, such as a biopsy, it would be difficult to determine if the lump is benign or malignant. Weakness may be due to low iron and cobalamin but there is always a possibility that it may be related to the lump. This, aside from a family history of cancer, should be enough to warrant further investigation of the mass. Good luck.
Avatar n tn Your doctor needs to do an imaging study of your neck - either ultrasound or CT scan, etc. to see what it may be.
