Lump in the back of my neck/under skin/top of spine- feels like a bone/joint/a knot, it's a pimple or zit size type bump. Doesn't hurt even when touch?

Sounds like it could: be a sebaceous cyst, but could be a small lipoma or raised nevus. Best to have your doctor look at it, or consider a consult with one of us on HealthTap Prime.
