Question: large lump now shrunken(over 2yrs) now painful


 pinkofcourse - Tue Nov 01, 2005 10:52 pm

Hello,
I have had a lump for about 2 years now. It was quite large before and now has shrunk to the size of a pea. But I am now feeling a bit sore. sometimes it's a sharp pain. But the majority of the time it's just a dull aching pain.

What does that mean?

What could possibly be wrong with me. I never get colds. I never get the flu. I do have allergies though.

Also I am always getting headaches to, with my ears getting clogged and so I take a couple tylenol sinus extra strength regular pills. The tylenol sinus works. But I dunno......
I am worried that the thing in my neck has been in me for about 2 yrs. and now its painful.

i had my blood checked two years ago. And it came back perfectomundo. So what could possibly mean?

Where on your neck is the lump....what color is it....what size was it......it may have been a swollen gland....or perhaps a cyst....but you might need to give more info as to appearance and location.
