Depends on location: It would depend on the location of the meningioma. If it is on the right side of your brain adjacent to the sensory area, it is possible that it might be irritating the regions that subserves the left side of the neck.

I have a soft, movable knot on the left side of my neck. Went to dr and they said it isn't a tumor or thyroid. What is it?
