See your doctor: Possibilities include a thyroglossal duct cyst (which can enlarge when infected), laryngocele, enlarged lymph node, and other less common problems. This needs evaluation and possibly imaging such as ultrasound or CT.

Lump on neck: It's probably a lymph node. Usually if they move easily, they are not worrisome. The lymph nodes in the neck are close to the skin surface and are easy to feel. Reasons to see a doctor would be if it keeps getting larger, if it gets red and tender, if you get night sweats or weight loss. If you smoke, stop!

I have a very small (It's not visible, you have to push down a bit to feel it) lump on the left side of my windpipe below my adams apple. Causes?

Lymph node: This could be a lymph node. Usually lymph nodes become big due to infection and inflammation. If it remains or enlarges, please see a doctor. There are other causes also. Possibly this is a skin "furuncle " which is an infection of the hair follicle/root. Consult a physician if it doesn't go away or enlarges.

My 14 yr old so. Has a. Marble size hard immovable lump just above his Adams Apple to the left. It has been there for 3 months and he doesn't think it has grown. It is not painful. Should I continue to wait or get him in immediately?

Probably benign node: If he doesn't have additional big nodes under his arm pits and groin, and is otherwise in good shape, you can watch it till his next appointment to get it checked out. These probably are Mandibular nodes from enlarged tonsils and other common frequent infections in the head and neck region. Fir his age, EBV is a common culprit.

Maybe reactive nodes: This sounds like reactive lymph nodes. Do you have acne? Sometimes in people with skin problems and skin infections the lymph nodes in the neck will swell. You should discuss this with your doctor or see and ENT doctor for an evaluation.

Immediate evaluation: If you fainted yesterday and also appear with this type of symptoms after a possible fall and trauma you need to go to the ED for immediate evaluation. There are many issues that can be going on especially with a history of bulimia.

Have checked: The small lump could be many things. Your thyroid gland is in that general area. Nodules (lumps) in the thyroid should be evaluated by a Physician. The best way to know what the lump is includes a physical examination
