Probably lymph node: There are several lymph glands located within the structures of the neck & will vary in size from the size of a pea to much larger if stimulated. When stimulated they can enlarge quickly and feel tender to touch or compression. A visit with your dr during regular hours should separate the simple transient issues from those needing further tests. ...Read more

Lump on right neck vein on the side, both sides I can feel it but the one on the right is sticking out and twice the size, help? No pain

Picture would help: More likely to stick out and be different in size is a lymph node. A lymph node does not have to hurt to stick out. A picture of what you are seeing would be helpful. As your finding is unclear you should follow up with a doctor. Lymph nodes enlarged and not present before are indicative of allergy, infection, or other going on in the head or neck area ...Read more

Lymph node rxns: This is likely a normal lymph node which typically swell in response to a stimulation derived from germs, bites or irritation of the skin (or throat)in their region. In most these are benign, with gradual enlargement followed by return to normal. Those in the head & neck are superficial & obvious. Failure to shrink within 3 wks may require add'l workup. Clarify issues with your Dr. ...Read more

Lump: This may be an ingrown hair, inclusion cyst or a burnt out old lymph node. It would have to be examined by a physician to be sure. It may need no treatment if there is no inflammation (redness and tenderness) present. If it enlarges or new lumps appear, more concern is raised and more evaluation and testing are needed. ...Read more

I have a lump on neck. Appeared 10 days ago and is growing I noticed a sm, lump on r- side of neck 10 days ago. 3 inches down 2 inches to r- of ear. Now it is 1, 1/2 inch round and sticks out 1/2 inch min. Does not hurt much cancer in family, dr looked an

Hello.: Hello. Cannot make a diagnosis through this venue. Although there can be swollen lymph nodes in that area; 1.5 inches in diameter would be much larger than expected. If it was a fatty tumor, would not expect it to have noticeable growth over ten days. If it is red, hot and tender, it could be an infected cyst. I agree with the doctor who examined you. If it becomes painful, red, hot, more swollen or there is swelling or heat in the surrounding area or you get an associated fever than you need to get it rechecked. ...Read more

Maybe a lymph node: This firm, round lump may be a lymph node, showing that your immune system is trying to do its job. Not unusual to have such lymph node swelling when you have a strep throat. If concerned, contact your doctor and let him/her examine you again. ...Read more

If you have fever, redness over the lump, discharge from the lump, or difficulty opening your jaw you should see your doctor asap. ...Read more

Lymph node?: Could be related to an infection if it is a lymph node. Rarely, enlarged lymph nodes can be an early sign of cancer or immune disorder, but based on your age and apparent healthy history, you would be at lower risk. It is recommended that you discuss with a physician and have it examined (unless it disappears). ...Read more

I have a golf ball sized, hard, fixed, non painful lump in my neck underneath my earlobe. It does not protrude but can be felt when u touch my neck.

I have a golf ball sized, hard, fixed, non painful lump in my neck underneath my earlobe. It does not protrude but can be felt when u touch my neck.

That's not good: The normal hard lumps in the neck are bones, which are symmetrical (left side is the same as right side). Any other newly-found hard lump should be evaluated as soon as the doctor is available (within a few days to a week). At the bottom of the earlobe is the mastoid bone. If one side (either left or right) is much bigger than the other side, that is not normal and needs evaluation. ...Read more

I have a hard, fixated lump in my neck (under ear) and in my inner right thigh. I noticed the pea-sized lump in my neck and groin about 2 years ago.

Lump in neck/groin: May be a lymph node from chronic sinusitis in the neck and prostatitis/urethritis in the groin or autoimune conditions. Seek medical attention at urgent care as lymph nodes can enlarge for other reasons like masses/tumors (less likley but still possible) so you need to have it checked out. ...Read more
