My baby is a month old and a couple of days ago I was massaging his neck and I felt a little lump on the back of it. What does it mean?
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.See 1 more doctor answer
Lymph nodes: Many possibilities including enlarged lymph nodes due to viral infection. See your family doctor or internist.
Be seen: It sounds like a lymph node or even an abscess. Be seen for an exam and diagnosis.

I have weird lump things on the side of my neck when I push down there painless but I thought lumps probably mean I have cancer?
I bet you're fine: Show your physician at your next office visit, or make an appointment if it keep growing, is stony-hard, and/or sticks to surrounding structures. Most young people have several palpable benign lymph nodes in the neck.
Not necessarily: Lumps anywhere are either benign or cancerous. Benign lumps in neck are frequently caused by infections in the throat which are common (colds and coughs due to viruses). But cancer can affect the neck lymph nodes or any other organs like thyroid or inside the mouth, which can show up as an enlarged neck nodes. You need to think cancer when the lump is painless and is continuing to grow for >3-4 wk.
So basically the lump on my left side of neck is like 1 CM or a little bigger, that means I have cancer? Its been there for months and is moveable
Probably not cancer: If the neck lump has changed little in one year and is still just over 1 cm, it is probably just a benign (non-malignant) lymph node or a small cyst or lipoma. However, you should have it examined by a medical profession for their opinion.
When there is cancer in the head and neck. Lumps are a symptom. Now do they mean the cancerous lump in lymph nobes? Or lumps grow anywhere In the neck
Cancer head and neck: Cancer has usually moved (metastasized) to lymph nodes as lymph flows out of primary tumor and into lymph nodes as it tries to get back to venous system.
