Go see family doctor, if it is serious they will refer you to a specialist, then the specialist will inspect it and refer you to a hospital then if they know what it is then its either good, or bad. Goodluck.

I have one too, I got freaked out at first, but it's just a nodule. If it's not growing in size, don't worry about it.

It could also be swollen from an infection or something, such as a minor cold or even "yeet hay" if you believe in that.

Go see a doctor before freaking out

It's probably a nymph node. I get them all the time, hurts like hell for a few days, then it slowly gets smaller...it's just part of your body's reaction to fight an infection, cold, flu, etc.

Yeah don't get freaked. 99% chance of it being a swollen lymph node, knowing you have a cold.

Whenever in doubt, seek medical advice - you did pay your taxes and MSP didn't you?

could be like everyone said--a swollen lymph node but it could also be a a tumour of some sort. not saying your life is in danger as it can be benign.

i developed a lump in my neck in my teens and found out it was a benign tumour. had to get it taken out and had a very apparent scar on my neck for years. in fact you can still see it to this day but it is much more faint. i'd go check with a doctor anyways to make yourself feel better.

I had to go to family doctor to see what the lump on my neck was, then after that to go see a specialist. The procedure for the examination was definitely not pretty but turns out out my lymph node was swollen.



picture of my neck if anyone is curious, this was 2 years ago.

OP i do head and neck exams on a regular basis
would you mind describing the bump a bit more? Where abouts on the neck is it (so we can differentiate whether it's a hardened lymph node or not). It's not a eruptive vellus cyst since you can move it around

I'd go see your doctor/dentist about soon but you dont need to go to emergency room

From what I remember I think they poked a needle at it.

But the worst part was when they shoved a camera up my nose and down my throat.

Ouch! But I'm sure you'll take all the probing in the world before it being something worse like cancer!

Wow typeRnammer, that neck looked really bad. That picture looked as if your node was further back under your neck (as oppose to under back of jaw bone).

Hey OP, wanna take a pic of your neck? =D

Like what other people say, most likely inflammation somewhere in your body or you are fighting a cold (cold season afterall)
