One sore lump in neck and one not sore lump in neck ?

Posted , 2 users are following.

about a week ago the front right side of my neck began to hurt very badly. The area was too tender to touch and the pain radiated through my jaw and ear. i thought it was a muscle strain and would do away in a few days.

it didnt.

after a few days my partner found a lump in my neck so immediately i was worried, i seen my GP who has sent me for an ultrasound tomorrow . Once i got home i remembered that about a year ago i found a small tiny lump on the back of my neck, the right side too, i felt it again tonight and im not sure if its anxiety but i feel lts bigger than before.

i would just like to hear some experiences or advice. im obviously worried about it being cancer and im terrified

      also have u had your ears looked at silly question i know but pain from the ear can be felt in the neck and jaw pain is not often associated with cancer in early stages its not until lumps become large they can pain from pressing on nerves etc thats how most cancers go unnoticed my son had a 13cm tumor on his adrenal gland it wasnt noticed until he was stage 3 and he never got any pain

      it could just be benign fatty tissue or cyst or could even just be swollen glands they are at the sides of the neck and the back of the neck also have them accross the breast bone etc

      im so sorry to hear about your son

      i had my ultrasound and my technician scared me so much

      she asked before the exam if id been feeling tired or sick which i said no

      she then took alot of pictures and at the end of the exam she said "and you said youre not feeling sick pr tired at all?" which has made me think she seen something bad

    Just posting to say they didn't find anything sinister in my ultrasound, not sure what's causing the pain, it is starting to get better though. I'm happy that it's not anything bad.
