I found 2 lumps on me.

Im scared, but i know i shouldnt be. I found 2 lumps on my neck. One is right behind my ear, right behind where you would have it pierced. The second on is on the same side but more towards the back of my neck. My sholder is so sore and hurts so bad.

I made a dr appt. But doesnt anyone have any idea what they could be. They are no bone hard..they are actually soft. i would say the one on the back of my next is about the size in diameter of a dime. The one behind my ear is about the same diameter but it sticks out bigger.

I havent been sick lately just allergies.

Any ideas?

  • swollen lymph node maybe? if it is a swollen lymph node you may have some kind of infection. it isn't necessarily something serious, it could just be a small infection, If it is a swollen lymph node it'll go away on its own, i get those occasionally.

  • I agree about swollen lymph node, I've had them and never really had an infection that I knew about, and they went away, but usually sign of minor infection.
