Neck Lumps
Nov 15, 2005

I have 2 lumps on the right handside of my neck, they aren't that painful but I can feel they are their. When I got up this morning I didn't feel well. Then I found these. Should I be worried and should I see a GP? I also have a lump on my head - as though I have benged it but I haven't....??

Response from Dr. Young

Thank you for your post.

If you have persistent swelling, you should at least mention this to your doctor.. since many of these "lumps" are swollen lymph nodes, it's important to know that they can be caused by minor things- canker sores, herpes flair or a bit cheek. So, there's little harm in waiting a few days to see if they subside on their own though. BY

Feel better after meds.
