New tooth: At 11 years old you most likely still have some baby teeth in the back. For most kids your age the next to last tooth is still a baby second molar. The 'bump" may be the new permanent tooth coming in. If the "bump" is on the cheek side this is probably the case. I see this very often. The solution is to have the baby tooth removed by your dentist for the new tooth can come in better. ...Read more

IsYourNameQuasimodo?: Don't press too hard, your head'll fall off!! OK, now that we got that out of the way...My guess is that it's just a part of normal anatomy of the spine. The spiny part you a referring to has ligaments & other fibrous tissue/cartilage on top & you may be feeling that, especially if it feels kinda slippery and moves. So stop doing it or it'll start to hurt. Check it in a month, if larger get it checked ...Read more

Hard to say: But things that I would worry about that could cause this are an infected or inflamed cyst. You could also have a skin abscess.

I have a lump in the back of my neck about one square inch big and it hurts. I had it for 8 months but now it hurts. It is hard to sleep.

See doctor...: You need to have this examined by your doctor to figure out what it is and to get it treated. If it has been there for 8 months, it is not going to go away on its own. There are many possibilities of what this could be but it can't be diagnosed without examining it-need to know if it is discolored, how hard or soft it is, its exact location, etc. Please see your doctor to get this taken care of. ...Read more

Need to examine: It is not feasible to provide a meaningful opinion without examining you, however, cancer is very unlikely. What you described may be pimples. You may consult this site for home remedies for acne and if that does not work, it would be prudent to see a doctor:
