Last month I had a pea-sized bump on my neck. Now it has been a bit smaller. It doesn't hurt but I hasn't gone away. Is it serious?

Unlikely: Lymph nodes are common in the neck area, as long as they are very tiny, less than 1/2 cm. If they increase in size, they need to be looked at. Any swelling that increases in size over a 1- 2 week period needs assessment. In your case, you stated that it got smaller, hence my comment above. If in doubt, would still talk to your doctor and have it seen and felt. Better to be safe. ...Read more

Have a pea size bump on tongue. A bit brown and hurts. Should I be concerned and yes I am a smoker?

Lesion on tongue: It could be an inflamed taste bud. Anything that is inflamed will turn brown due to the smoking itself. I would have an ENT check it to make sure it is nothing.

The sooner your check it the sooner you will not worry about it. Feel better! ...Read more
