Try this...: Does the pain stay in 1 place, or does or move to hand or fingers? If to the finger, then possible nerve pain, but I doubt you have that. Did you have an injury? If so, that should heal with warm heat, light activity & OTC pain med (like ibuprofen or acetaminophen). Are you a serious couch potato? Then muscle weakness & poor posture are factors, & core strengthening exercises should be added. OK?

Inspissated.: Inspissated pore is one with thick discharge in the skin; it can have an offensive odor. An additional possibility is a sebaceous cyst which is draining.

Neck strain: Try Naproxen twice daily and Tylenol (acetaminophen) four times daily for a couple of days. If not improving, find an inexpensive chiropractor and go for only a few visits. If no improvement after that, see your regular doctor. If there was no associated injury, l doubt it's disc related and mist likely a severe muscle spasm pinching a nerve. Could benefit from trigger point injections from doctor.

Neck hurts: This sounds like you are having a pinched nerve. There is a nerve that comes out of the spine at the top of the neck and turns up to give sensation to the scalp on the back of the head.

Probably b9 nodule: If you've had this for years and it has never caused you pain or discomfort, most likely it is a benign nodule.

2 docs have said I def have a lipoma exactly top of spine/base neck. Still worried I have cancer. Are they easy to diagnose by touch + by its position?
Usually: Lipomas have a characteristic soft and somewhat mobile feel on exam. They don't change much over time. Cancer doing this would be unusual and your doctors are likely correct in their conclusion. Ultrasound of lipomas can show a rounded fatty area or nothing (with the lipoma blending into the surrounding fat). Sometimes ultrasound is done when patients feel they need further evidence of noncancer.
