Lump on nape of neck

Common Questions and Answers about Lump on nape of neck


Avatar m tn Just the other day I felt a lump at the back of my neck, right side. It seemed small, pimple-size, and so I didn't worry about it. However, it's been a few days and it seems to have gotten bigger. It's under the skin, doesn't cause much pain (generally painless, but sometimes if you press on it, it aches. Other times it randomly aches on its own), doesn't move, and seems hard (though I wouldn't describe it as rock hard). Does anyone have any idea what it could be?
168348 tn?1379360675 Was @ dermatologist to have all these things readdressed and the back of neck eruption was an abscess & the other remaining things are stitch granulomas and doing well along the incision line .. Dermatologist cleaned and drained the one on nape of neck & it feels better already. He said would never have gone away on its own. ***** He is going to fully remove the bump under my adam's apple w/few stitches .. this started out of nowhere the day after surgery ????
Avatar n tn This lasted for about 3 weeks but I know it was normal because my brother had the exact same thing and many people at work had it too. Almost immediately after cough ended I noticed a pea sized hard lump on the left side of my neck 2 inches behind and 4 inches below my left ear. It is well under the skin and seems to be grown out of the large muscle there that runs until it touches the top of my jaw.
Avatar f tn Hi, In fact I think you must go to a surgeon right away. He can evaluate the armpit lump and the 'mass' at the nape of the neck. A mammogram and clinical breast examination is also indicated. Are you a smoker? Pl keep me posted. All the best, and God Bless!
Avatar m tn It is situated above and to the right of her left shoulder on the back, almost at the nape of the neck (so between shoulder blade and neck but up high at the nape of the neck). It is under the skin and can be felt at the nearly same position even if the skin is shifted around (we think it may not be a part of the skin), it feels like it is situated on the muscle under the skin. She has had it a week and she finds it annoying.

Avatar n tn Hi I am constantly getting in grown hairs on the back of my neck as well, I stopped shaving my neck for 2 months and used cortizone creams and such but nothing gets rid of these bumps. I no they are in grown hairs. I once had one that looked like a huge tumor. If you can imagine the embarasment these portray, if there is anyone out there please help us.
Avatar f tn Hi, i have a lump behind my left ear its hard and its sometimes accompanied by severe headache, nape pain, and nausea. I know that lumps behind ears are supposed to be indicators of infections and that its probably a swollen lymph nodes. But i just find it odd that every time i suffer from from severe headache its getting bigger and harder and always with the symptoms i mentioned above. Does anyone know what this mean? Thank you.
Avatar f tn If you have a history of cancer in the family and you are now having headaches and blurry vision. Is it near the nape of the neck? Is the lump superficial like a pimple or boil or does it feel as if there is tissue thickness between touch and the mass. But due to your family history you should go to see your General Practitioner and they will assess you like you deserve.
Avatar f tn My son has a lrg sized lump on the left side of the back of his head near the nape of his neck. I just saw it, he said he has had it about 6+ months now. He has not gotten injured or fell, or anything to explain it being there. He said he exp. severe pain and the feeling of great pressure in his head.
748543 tn?1463449675 So the price for accommodation to the poor bite is most often paid for by our neck. Of course only about 24% of the population formally complain about TMD/TMJD, however if we closely examine all patients I believe we find that the incidence is much higher than that. My approach today is to start this alignment process from within: from the inside first -with the integrity of the spine in correct position.
Avatar f tn Hi is this sinus conected I have a pressure in my nose and checkbones and also into my top front teeth. But also so much pressure in the nape of the neck, which when i press seems to releve the pressure in the head until i stop then the pressure is back again. It is making me feel slightly lightheaded ond off balance too. I have had this now for three weeks. It seems to get worse as the day goes on. Does anyone know if this is sinus and how long it might last for?

Avatar f tn I am now waking to black and blue eyes and my neck was blue in spots. My husband said the nape of my neck at the hairline has a raspberry like bruise. I also had swollen veins in my hand the last few days. They protruded so much and bulged, they looked like worms. It was gross. I am at the end of my rope. I am exhausted, physically and mentally. Just wish I had an answer.
529981 tn?1212853666 There is a sandy-grainy like build up on my scalp This is also accompanied by an itch. Even after I wash my hair, the grainy like build up is still there. It is NOT flaky what so ever. My hair has also started to fall out and at the end of my hair, a white little grain is at the end. Hair will not stop falling out. I have gotten blood tests at a dermatology office and everything was normal. I also have tried about very type of zinc pyrithione shampoo, at the highest concentrations.
Avatar n tn I have the same problems as u all, have had them for three years now I also have a lump on the left side of my neck , has anyone been tested for lymphoma?
Avatar n tn Hi to all of you out there. I too have a lump on the left inside of my vaginal lips. I am 65, so age has nothing to do with it. I am told. Check into Bartholin's Gland cyst. this may be your problems. but, what ever you do, GO TO A DOCTOR. this could be nothing, yet it could be something bad, and if you put it off, well, we should all want to take better care of our selves, especially with our organs.
Avatar n tn Recently, I experienced tingles, numbness on my toes, feet, hand, face. It all started with tingles on top of my head all of a sudden while on the computer one night. Then woke up with a phone call around 3am one night and noticed my left feet was numb and tingles. This was last Wednesday. Then Friday, my ears completed got plugged up I could hardly hear only for a few minutes. Since then my ears are more plugged than the usual (I have plugged stuffy ears all the time but not extreme).
Avatar n tn I went back to the ENT to talk about the deviated septum. He said that my deviation is actually touching the turbinates on the right side of my nose. He then processed to push the blame on my allergist and then prescribed me Singular. I told him that I was not going to drop another $40 on medication that he was guessing that will help me. He gave me a 24 day supply but said that it might take over a month's worth of the medicine for it to "Kick In".
Avatar n tn I read about a research study that claims yawning is the body's way of cooling the brain so i tried something that probably sounds really dumb. I started putting ice packs on the nape of my neck and the sides of my neck and on my face at the corner of my jaw. This is supposedly where the nerves and muscles that control the yawn reflex are located. While it appears to help a little bit, i cannot walk around all day with ice packs on my face and neck!
Avatar n tn You just struck something with the menopausal age and hormones though and I'm wondering if this could be part of my problem. When I was younger I was on every type of birth control possible and was unable to be on any of the pills, my hormones fluctuated so much and I suffered from severe migraines, and all made me physically ill with what I could only describe as morning sickness, without being pregnant. I did Depoprovera and was fine for a couple of yrs and then had the same issues.
Avatar n tn I also took 10,000 units of HCG trigger shot but it has been 8 days since I had shot so I don't know if that could be it. Please HELP!!!
