I have swollen lymph nodes in my neck and a lump on my upper back. All are painless. Should I see a doctor about this?
Yes: Most lumps in back are sebaceous cysts or lipomas. If a lesion there were malignant it would drain to axilla and not neck. The lump should be examined to define its nature and then if excsion not indicated, the nature of the cervical nodes should be evaluated. This can only be accomplished by a physician. ...Read more
I have a fatty lump in my back, recently it is causing pain in my upper back and neck, is there anything that can be done? Thanks.
Evaluate and remove: It sounds like a subtype of a lipoma with more fibrous tissue that tends to be more symptomatic for people and occurs in the upper back area. I would recommend seeing a dermatologist or a surgeon for evaluation ant remove it most likely within an hour under local anesthesia. They may want to image it to ensure it isn't impinging on vital nerves. ...Read more

Blocked gland?: A sebaceous cyst is a collection of oily fluid that occurs when an oil gland is blocked. Some folks are more prone to them than other and they often appear on the neck, shoulders, and back. Try to avoid skin products that are oily. Stay away from transfats and bad oils, which is good for overall health. See doc for proper diagnosis because it could be more serious. ...Read more

I have a tiny knot/lump on the upper back of my head that wasn't but now is sore/burning. A 2nd one seems to be coming up. Should I be concerned?
2 options: Two things come to mind. The most likely is small cysts that are becoming irritated or infected. The other possibility is lymph nodes that are swelling up. Either way you should get it checked because either condition might require treatment. I would say it's not terribly concerning but if left without treatment could get worse. ...Read more
