Epidermal cyst: Epidermal cysts are benign, but they are a nuisance, because they periodically go through the cycle that you described. Eventually it will swell up and pop again, discharging evil-smelling toothpaste-like stuff, and later on it will do it again... So you should have it removed. Any dermatologist can do it in the office with local anesthetic. Minor surgery. No hurry. ...Read more

Neck lumps: If you're feeling lumps on both sides of your neck, they're probably cervical lymph nodes. Other neck lumps include sebaceous cysts, but it'd be uncommon for these to occur symmetrically. I'd recommend getting them checked out by your doc in the next 1-2 weeks - nothing urgent unless you're having fever, difficulty swallowing, or increasing pain. Then see your doc sooner. ...Read more

Normal lymph node: We have lymph nodes scattered throughout our body & they are often detected in the neck where they sit on top of neck muscles. These nodes are little fluid strainers that take body lymph & remove stray germs and debris from things like bug bites. They are often pea sized at rest & grow to dime sized when working. Within 2-3 wks they often shrink back down unless they are stimulated further. ...Read more

Exam needed: I recommend that you be examined in view of the fact that two lumps are now present on either side of your neck. These may be enlarged lymph nodes and if so blood tests looking for blood dyscrasias and mononucleosis are indicated. A biopsy may be advisable if these don't recede or increase in size or number. A benign situation like a viral illness may be the cause,however and they could recede. ...Read more
