FYI, painful thyroiditis usually gets better on its own, but may go thru phases of dysfunction ...Read more

I have a bruise on neck resembling a hickey. Possible causes? No kissing or injury to the area. I do have swollen lymph nodes in the region.

Get a medical check: This bruise could be from any kind of injury or bump. But your enlarged lymph glands concern me even more.

A blood count(cbc) may be able to rule out any obvious cause of bleeding(bruises).If the lymph nodes are larger than one centimeter or if they enlarge further, then a biopsy of the node be. ...Read more
