Take a deep breath: I can tell you not to worry about it, but I know that will not work. These symptoms do not seem consistent with either of the diagnoses you fear. Regardless, make an appointment to see your physician. It may be something simple like dehydration (it has been getting hotter in Chatham, no?). Your doctor is the best person to discuss your concerns. ...Read more

Have a lump on back side of head and one more at the base of my neck.they are a little red and tender to the touch.making neck sore also.

Seek evaluation.: Any neck soreness from a "lump" needs an evaluation. The timing of the evaluation is based on the speed at which the symptoms are developing. If the symptoms are new and progressing over a day or two, or if there is a fever or stiffness in the neck, please seek care asap. If the progression is slower, you can consider a primary care provider or pharmacy based nurse practitioner evaluation. ...Read more
