I'd recommend getting them checked out by your doc in the next 1-2 weeks - nothing urgent unless you're having fever, difficulty swallowing, or increasing pain. Then see your doc sooner. ...Read more

I have a large round lump on the back of my neck it doesn't hurt and it moves if pressed on. Is this a sign of a serious condition or is it cosmetic?
Lipoma or cyst: The most common causes of a painless soft lump in that area are lipoma (a benign fat tumor) and epidermal cyst (a benign cyst that forms when cells from the top skin layer go deeper). If it's large, it's probably been there for a long time - so i would suggest seeing your doctor, who will make sure it is not something more unusual and potentially more of a problem. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Small lump on the back of my neck near my spine. Several months ago it popped with a soft material. Will not go away and is under skin, painless, moves?
Epidermal cyst: Epidermal cysts are benign, but they are a nuisance, because they periodically go through the cycle that you described. Eventually it will swell up and pop again, discharging evil-smelling toothpaste-like stuff, and later on it will do it again... So you should have it removed. Any dermatologist can do it in the office with local anesthetic. Minor surgery. No hurry. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
