Lump on the back of neck, almost 15 years old, it was pea sized lump with no pain. Since yesterday he is feeling pain with inflammation. Help pls.
Lymph node: I'm sorry he isn't feeling well.The lump is most likely an inflamed lymph node. Lymph nodes get bigger and tender when fighting off an infection. The infection may be close by (scalp may have lice or ringworm, a local skin infection, for example). Once the infection clears, the lymph node should also subside. If it doesn't, another reason will have to be investigated. Best to go see his doctor! ...Read more

Have it checked: It's hard to evaluate such a question online, but it's possible it could be a cyst of some sort or even an enlarged lymph node or even something else.

I have a hard,pea sized lump right side of my neck towards the back.noticed 3 months ago,not got bigger or smaller.does it sound serious?
Probably not cancer: IF the lesion has not been growing, it is reasonable to observe this over time. If it grows or new ones occur, I suggest being seen. This could be a noncancerous lymph node or a cyst beneath the skin. If it does not move about under the skin when you push on it and it appears to have a tiny black spot in the middle, it is probably a skin cyst. ...Read more
