Question: Lump


 twentythree - Thu Sep 22, 2005 1:31 pm

Hi, I have a quick question... just today I was rubbing my neck and found a small pea-sized lump on the right side towards the back. I can move it around with my finger... what could this be? Should I make an appointment with my doctor? Thanks.

Could possibly be an inflammed lymph glad or could be a calcium cyst. It would be in your best interest to let a physician personally evaluate it.
