Position: It could be stiff and sore due to the position you sleep in. Try changing positions, and get a new pillow that's not too thick.

A 26-year-old member asked:

The past 2 nights going to bed 2 lumps have appeared on my neck in my hairline. They are sore but dissappear by lunch then reappear by night?

Doctor to evaluate: The symptoms of 2 lumps on the neck skin appearing, disappearing, reappearing, for 2 nights... Sounds odd, so a visit to a primary care doctor or a dermatologist will be needed to figure things out. Hives (allergic welts) can come and go like this, but are itchy. Bug bites, acne, infected hair follicles, lymph nodes, etc... All can appear as bumps but don't disappear so quickly.
A 41-year-old member asked:

My neck lymph nodes are swollen and tender this morning. So, something might happen to me later today?

Possible: Obviously this depends on the cause of the lymph node abnormalities. If further symptoms develop you may benefit from direct physician exam.

Probably trauma: At your age, the most likely explanation is that you are doing something that is causing it to hurt. You need to figure out what it is and stop doing it. Common causes are holding the phone with your head, carrying things with your head, suspending your head while doing something else (like watching tv) or straining the neck muscles in exercise.

A 41-year-old member asked:

Enlarged tender masses on the right side of my neck, what to do?

1 doctor answer1 doctor weighed in

See your doctor: Lumps in the neck can be caused by a number of things. They range from benign (like lymph nodes responding to an infection, cysts, or non-cancerous tumors) to serious things like cancer. You should see your doctor for an exam. Masses in the neck (especially in someone who uses tobacco) that don't go away need to be evaluated by an ENT doctor.
