My cousin jumped up and hit me in the neck. I felt winded and had a lot of pain. I also have a hard movable lump at the back of my neck. ?

With the lump which I assume was not there before then this should be checked to make sure some of the structures were not injured. This needs to be checked by your provider so they could see if anything was injured. Please see a physician. I hope this is helpful. ...Read more

They can be quite painful but they are a sign of a healthy immune system. They tend to go away after several days, and can be treated with anti-inflammatory medications and warm compresses. If they persist, follow up with your doctor. ...Read more
