  • I had a painful lump on the back of my neck at 16. They removed it during surgery. I was an out patient. Have it checked out. I'm sorry but that is all I can remember about it. Wasn't anything bad I know.

    So far she has had blood work and a cat scan 6 months ago both negative. GP wants MRI now refered to see a ENT.

  • I am a thyroid cancer survivor. Take her to the doctor now. I didn't notice my lump which was actually on my neck for years because I saw myself every day and it wasn't that noticeable. If I would have noticed it I would have seen a dr. ASAP. It took my cyst shifting and cutting off my airway for me to even know I HAD one. Don't take chances.

  • Take her to that specialist NOW. Not sure why her regular doctor or you would wait this long to find out why she has a lump on her neck. A year is way too long to wait.
