Supraclavicular lump: What you describe might be one of several things, including a lipoma, cyst or a lymph node. Cancer is possible, specifically Hodgkin's lymphoma given your age, although enlarged lymph nodes in Hodgkins are more often painless. Other cancers would be less likely. Make an appointment to see your doctor so that it can be evaluated. Overall odds are that it is not going to be something serious. ...Read more

Lymph node: any unexplained neck mass should be evaluated and if needed you should get blood testing and lymph node evaluation, especially in view of the severe headaches, I would recommend a CT scan of the head and neck. You must be examined and tested. ...Read more

Lymph nodes?: It sounds as if you're got a few palpable lymph nodes, include at least one of the supraclavicular group. The average young person (my series) has two palpable lymph nodes. If they get really big or become fixed to a nearby structure, ask your physician. Best wishes. ...Read more

See Your Doctor: You have 2 lumps "right side of neck". Lumps that can be felt in the neck region are usually prominent lymph nodes which are part of your immune system. Infection, trauma, & cancers can cause them to enlarge with or without pain. However, a prominent node can be a benign finding. You should have your doctor take a look to provide the correct diagnosis and for reassurance if no treatment is needed. ...Read more

Tingling sensation left side of neck, starting at collarbone and progressing through left shoulder to the elbow.

Tingling sensation left side of neck, starting at collarbone and progressing through left shoulder to the elbow.

Pinched nerve: A pinched nerve in the neck can cause a tingling or shooting pain sensation that might radiate in the neck and down an arm. The problem could be related to a disk issue in your neck. An MRI could possibly look into this further. I hope this helps. ...Read more

Nodes : It's likely you have a slightly enlarged lymph node in your neck. As long as it moves freely underneath the skin and is less than a cm in size, you are probably fine. However, i would suggest that you have your doctor take a look and feel of the area just to make sure. ...Read more

There are many in the neck, head & behind the ear. At rest these are often 1/4 inch in diameter and may grow to marble sized when reacting to a stimulus. Bug bites, or viral infections can increase their size.They should shrink down to nl size over a few wks. ...Read more

Sebaceous cyst: Sebaceous cysts are very common problems. The occur when skin glands get obstructed and sebum builds up. They may get infected leading to redness pain and increasing size. You should see your doctor to have the cyst removed. Until then warm compresses and oral analgesics like acetaminophen and ibuprofen can help decrease the pain. ...Read more
