Small Hard Bump Under Skin On Neck
I felt a small hard bump on the back on my neck right under the hairline, what is that? I work on a computer all day, could it be tension? I feel the bump on only on the left side of my head.
Hello.: Hello. I can't diagnose your bump. It could be a swollen lymph node or a cyst. If it doesn't resolve within 2 to 3 weeks, if may be prudent to get it checked. Read more
I have a small Bump under my skin in my neck area, it is a little discoloration. Just noticed it. Should I be worried?
Depends.: It's hard to say without looking at it. Most lumps and bumps in young people are nothing to be concerned about. Unless you have a family history of skin cancer, it is hurting you or there are other associated concerning symptoms, I would give it a few weeks and if it's worsening or not gone have someone take a look at it.

Woke up with a small bump on the back of my neck and it's painful. Spent time in a hair salon where my head was in a stiff position. What could it be?
Many Possibilities: Depending on how long it's been going on, I would consider an evaluation by a spine specialist. Sometimes it could be a muscle imbalance, early onset arthritis or scoliosis. Also could be a pinched nerve/herniated disc. Either way it might be good to figure it out and get appropriate treatment. Read more

For so many years I had this very small bump on the back of my neck it feels like a pimple almost but it's under the skin. Has not changed.?
Stable skin lesion: Bumps under or within the skin have various causes. The most common are dermal nevus and cyst. In general, lesions that are unchanged for years are harmless. Be more concerned if the bump enlarges, crusts or bleeds. Diagnosis is often easy for a trained doctor but sometimes the lesion has to be surgically removed as a precaution.

Squeezed small bump on neck. Awful smelling stuff comes out. Keeps coming back. It is not a boil. Its under skin no head. Is it infected pore.
Sebaceous cyst: This is a typical sebaceous cyst, perhaps a fairly large one. It's probably not infected now, and is harmless unless and until that happens. But it can be a pretty big deal if infection occurs. It can be treated with minor surgery to prevent recurrent accumulation, drainage, and infection -- probably by a dermatologist. Contact your doctor about a referral. Read more
My scalp at the nape of the neck is quite itchy and I scratch it often. This is scalp covered by my hair. It now has small bumps on the skin. Advice?
Could be. ..: It very well could be a cause of more symptomatic seborrheic dermatitis or psoriasis, even a plain ole fungal infection. While you could try over-the-counter dandruff shampoos like neutrogena T-gel, you would be best suited by first seeing your doctor to make sure it doesn't require more aggressive treatment. Best of luck. Read more
On the right side of my head/neck, just at the hairline, I have had a firm bump for a couple months. Have had mono twice. Have night sweats.?
# of possibilites.: The firm bump could be a lymph node, a sebaceous cyst, an acne cyst, among others. The area described sounds like part of the lymph node chain called posterior cervical. If you had mono recently, it may be from that and slowly should resolve. The area drains infections from several areas of face and scalp on that side. Night sweats makes me think infection. 2 months? Go for check-up & blood tests. Read more
Blister like bump under sons neck. It started small almost looked like a skin tag but looks like it's getting fluid and getting bigger?
Eneck Lump: A lump in the neck can mean many things. If it was initially a skin tag, it may represent a remanent of development that has a sinus and forms a cyst. Send a picture or have it seen. It may also be a simple abscess. Much depends upon where it is located. All the best. Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

I have a small bump on the back of my neck close to my ear its right umder the knobss on the back of your head its a lil sore but u can't see anything?
Probably lymph node: There are several lymph glands located within the structures of the neck & will vary in size from the size of a pea to much larger if stimulated. When stimulated they can enlarge quickly and feel tender to touch or compression. A visit with your dr during regular hours should separate the simple transient issues from those needing further tests. Read more
