Is neck clicking above the adams apple bad?

Is neck clicking above the adams apple bad?

Not if there is no pain: And also no known injury. I assume you're referring to the cervical spine and not clicking anterior or in the front of your throat by the adam's apple.

Small lymph node tender on one side of Adam's apple?

Don't worry yet.: By your description, this sounds to be a benign lymph node enlargement. Typically they go away within two weeks. Certainly if this node doesn't go away in four weeks total, you should get an evaluation - typically this would include excision of the node for definitive diagnosis, unless an obvious reason for it to be there is otherwise found. ...Read more

Holding neck straight upward, there is a small lump approx. 1 inch above collarbone directly on top of sternomastoid. Thyroid or jugular lymph node?

Holding neck straight upward, there is a small lump approx. 1 inch above collarbone directly on top of sternomastoid. Thyroid or jugular lymph node?

Just a guess: If it's very superficial, likely neither. If directly deep to the muscle, it's probably a lymph node (unless your thyroid is very large). Dozens of nodes are present in the neck, and it can be normal to be able to feel a few. If it's new, enlarging, over about 1cm, firm, or if you have a history of cancer or are simply just concerned, it is never inappropriate to see a doctor (ent, etc.). ...Read more
