Do swollen lymph nodes hurt? I have a marble sized bump on the back of my neck right above the hairline. It is also hard. What could it be?

In brief: Sometimes

Lumps in the neck can be caused by a number of things.
They range from benign (like lymph nodes responding to an infection, cysts, or non-cancerous tumors) to serious. Your doctor, after doing a history and physical exam can help you and recommend a specialist if needed.
