May be neck muscle: If it is really behind the neck, it isn't likely to be a gland. The glands are mainly on the front side of the neck. One of the larger back of the neck muscles may be larger than the other side, or may be swollen from being over used. This muscle is called the trapezius, if you want to look it up and confirm that is where the swelling is at. ...Read more

Arm pain: The arm pain most likely is unrelated to the lump which could be a cyst, ingrown hair or inflamed lymph gland due to some scalp irritation or inflammation. The arm symptom suggests a nerve impingement from a spur or disc in the region of a neck vertebra. A physician or a neurologist would be able to advise her after an examination. ...Read more

1 doctor agreed:

See a doctor: How long have you had it? You should have it looked at by a doctor, but the most common thing there is lipoma, which we leave alone if it doesn‘t bother you. However, we never truly know what it is unless we remove it and do a biopsy. If someone tells me it has been present for years, I just leave it alone. ...Read more

Small 1 CM lump where neck meets shoulder, firat noticed over a month ago. Painless, underskin down toward the muscle. Is 14 years old.

See your doctor: This could represent a swollen lymph node if it's closer to the neck. However, given that it's 1 cm and persists, this should be evaluated in person by a doctor. It might require x-ray imaging or even biopsy to ensure that it's benign and not representative of some kind of malignancy. Don't panic, just be cautious and have it evaluated soon. ...Read more

Neck mass/lump: There are a lot of characteristics of concerning or worrisome lumps in the neck. You do have lymph nodes throughout your neck, including the area you are describing. If the lump is hard or rubbery and non-tender, this is concerning. If it seems stuck and not very mobile when you push on it, these are also concerning signs. Ultimately, any neck mass should be evaluated by a practitioner. ...Read more

What could it be? I have pain on the back of my neck. The back of my neck hurts quite a bit. I don't feel any lumps or anything. It hurts specially on the right side, pain goes on to my right shoulder too. I'm taking Advil for the pain, it helps for a fe

Right: Right sided neck pain is probably coming from your facet joints or muscles in your neck. I would recommend rest, hot shower and gently stretching your neck and continue taking advil (ibuprofen) as directed by your primary care doctor for couple days. Stop advil (ibuprofen) if you develop any sided effects such as stomach pain, bleeding, kidney problems or allergic reactions, but not limited to these problems. If the pain does not improve over the next couple days you should see your primary care doctor. Physical therapy is the usually the initial treatment for neck pain. Good luck! ...Read more

Neck and shoulder pain are probably not related to your new finding in the trap muscle.
It might be helpful to have someone take a picture of the lump. Furnucle, lipoma are two benign conditions that might be there.
