In brief: Cyst on Neck

Neck cysts or a lump or bump on the neck area can be caused by a number of different things.
Bacterial or viral infections, cancer, thyroid problems or an area that has recently been injured, can cause not only swelling and redness in the neck but they can also produce cysts. If you are suffering with neck cysts, you may want to be seen by a doctor, so that he can rule out or help to diagnose.
