Node on the back of my neck that enlarges at night and gets smaller. CBC showed high normal RBC, hematoctrits, hemoglobin. Noticed bruises on arm leg?

Keep an eye on it: Benign enlargement of neck nodes is not uncommon. Unless it is growing in size and becomes larger than 1 Cm, I would ask you to ignore it. Do not check it daily as your own fingers pressing and poking on it will cause trauma and make the lymph node larger. So check it once every 1 or 2 weeks and take note of size.

I have been having a bruising headache on the back of my head and neck and shoulder hurt. I am a hypochondriac. Do I have a brain tumor? I'm scared

Tumor very unlikely: Headaches and neck/shoulder pain are very common. Rarely are they the sign of a brain tumor, especially at your age. If the headaches are much different than anything you've ever had before, and aren't improving after 2-3 weeks, then a medical exam is reasonable. Please try not to worry. Very unlikely to be serious, and worry will only worsen neck/shoulder tension and headache. ...Read more
