Hiradinitis : The way you describe sounds like a lesion with pus formation it is more common in armpits. But any area where the hair is curly can cause this issue. Need to use hot pack to soften the induration (lumps) and can use antibiotic like neosporin if the area gets bigger and painful need to see your doctor. ...Read more

OK?: If it is a sebaceous cyst, those are usually left alone unless they become infected or irritated. If want removed, can be done as a local in-office incision/excision by some family practice dr's, or dermatologist, or surgeon. ...Read more

Lump: The question is do you know what a cyst feels like? If two doctors have examined you and said it is a cyst, what happens when you go to the third and he says it is a cyst? Do you then go to the fourth? You either need at some point to believe them or not. If you don't believe them then do you keep going to doctors until you find one that tells you what you want? Get it removed! ...Read more

Lymph node: There are many lymph nodes in the neck and back of the head that are often more noticeable because they are located where our fat pads don't hide them. If you feel around you should find several the size of a pea ; sometimes bigger.They can increase to the size of a big peanut if stimulated by local factors, illness or vaccines.I would just monitor it or have doc see it during regular visit. ...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
