Get checked: A long standing unexplained lump in the neck or chin needs to be checked and sooner is better than delaying. While there are many things that can cause this, most of which are benign, there is a real potential for something very serious. Get started right away. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
I have 3 lumps in my neck for years. 2 are soft, movable and pea sized. The other is hard and doesn't move. Should cancer be a concern?
Swollen lymph node: A persistently swollen node is concerning and needs to be worked up. Your ENT will likely order a biopsy (FNA, fine needle or open). It is important to understand what process is going on. A pathologist will review your biopsy and hopefully provide answers. Cancer is possible and should be ruled out with the biopsy. ...Read more

This : This is something that has to be checked out asap. Your age, fatigue, anorexia, weight loss, and growth of multiple neck masses raises real concern over the possibility of lymphoma. It is not normal to have these masses in your neck for a year. I would seek the help of an experienced ENT who can obtain a thorough history and exam, and perform fna ( fine needle aspiration) on the dominant neck mass. It should be sent for c & s, cytopathology, and flow-cytometry. Depending on the results, you may require open biopsy ( these are probably enlarging lymph nodes) for further characterization. If the doctor can't do this in the office, you can be sent to interventional radiology for ultrasound-guided fna. You are not wasting anybody's time you must be seen. Wishing you the best. ...Read more

No: cuatnaeous leukemia can rarely present as a skin lesion and not lumps on neck. Think more of those lumps present for a long time that do not appear to have enlarged dramatically or increased in number and one should suspect a benign process. While these could be inflammatory nodes, more likely one thinks of lipomas or sebaceous cysts. ...Read more

I have a question I have these lumps on my neck from my previous surgery my doctor thinks there muscle knots can they be seen on a MRI ?
Yes: MRI has great resolution for muscle, but it'd be a VERY expensive test to just diagnose some muscle knots. There may be more serious things that an MRI can pick up, i.e. enlarged lymph nodes in your neck, but this would be unlikely unless you were also having fevers, fatigue, night sweats, or some sign of infection. Try warm compresses and a massage to see if they'll go away. ...Read more
I am 24 and I have no significant pmh. I have two small lumps in my neck one on either side in almost the exact same spot. What could they be?
Location and Size: Lymph nodes are normal unless large, painful or in wrong location. Small, round, firm, painless along chain in front or back of neck is normal. Increase in size with response to inflammation, i.e. Allergies/uri. Abnormal if large, painful, external skin changes or associated with systemic symptoms such as fever, fatigue, weight loss, rash- and should be evaluated. ...Read more

Calcium Deposits: What you are describing could be caused by calcium deposits under the skin (calcinosis cutis). This can happen in autoimmune conditions like lupus. You can get a definitive answer by seeing your doctor or a dermatologist and have a biopsy of one of the lumps. The biopsy will tell you and your doctor what is causing the lumps. Good luck to you. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
I have 5-7 lumps on my neck, behind ear, spine. they start out like a small hard lump or large lump and scab over. im 22. is this cancer? it dont hurt
Possibly infection: If the lesions end up with scabs it sounds more likely that these lumps are infection such as a boil or abscess. However, I tend to be conservative and the lumps should be evaluated and if necessary a biopsy may be taken or if there is discharge then a culture could be taken. See a medical provider. Good luck ...Read more
