Nodes?: Most swollen glands or lumps under the skin are not cause for concern. The glands (lymph nodes) on either side of the neck, under the jaw, or behind the ears commonly swell when you have a cold or sore throat. More serious infections may cause the glands to enlarge and become very firm and tender. If it gets bigger or you have fevers see a doctor. Try some ibuprofen in the meantime. ...Read more

I've  a pea size lump on left side of my neck over a year.it was a pimple. nw ts about 1cm. i've no other problems.its not painful.slightly movable.

Probably ok but >>: Usually lymph nodes less than 1 cm are insignificant, and those over 2 centimeters are more worry some. In a young healthy patient with no other symptoms, and no increase in the size of the lymph node over one year, it's unlikely that this 1 cm lymph node is significant. You need an examination to evaluate for lymph node enlargement in other sites. Dr will decide if you need if you need a biopsy. ...Read more
