Sore lump in my neck right below the chin. Lymph node? Why?

Natural response

Inflammation
May be dental infection, viral illness, other. If it persists, continues to enlarge or becomes worse, see your family doctor. Lymph nodes help fight inflammation and get large when they do so. It is usually helpful to you, but may produce unpleasant symptoms in the process. Hope you are better soon.

If

If you have been exposed to someone with strep throat, then you should be evaluated and treated. Untreated strep throat can have other more serious complications. You should be evaluated.

Dr. Rada Ivanov answered:

why do i have flue like symptoms and a soar throat and neck only at night?

Dryness or allergies

Neck-throat
You may be allergic to something in your home, or have a very dry environment. Try a humidifier, eliminate allergens and if that does not help, see a doctor. Infectious diseases with periodic fevers are a very remote possibility also, if you have travelled a lot or have had unusual exposures.

Neck mass, what can it be, scar tissue?

See a Doctor

Neck
A neck mass can be serious so please get checked. i can't tell what a mass is unless i examine a patient and that is hard to do over the internet. It could be a swollen lymph node and that could be from an infection or from cancer so don't fool around. good luck!
