Small, red bump on neck? Cancerous?

Posted , 2 users are following.

im 13. I woke up today and noticed a small red bump on my neck. It doesn't hurt or is bothersome but it the skin around it did turn red with my keep touching it. I cant tell if its raised or flat. It too small to see. It doesnt look scaly or anything. Its feels flat to the touch but looks slightly raised when i tried to zoom in on it with my phone. Is this cancerous? I havent seen any other bumps. thanks!

    edit: I mean its a little too small to tell if its raised or flat, but its noticeable because of the red color

    it really doesnt sound cancerous. seems more like a possible irritation , allergic reaction hive. or bug bite. could be many things that are not serious. start with the most likely causes. have u done anything different like change laundry soap, does it itch?

    people get occasional tiny pimples that are red many things it could be .

    it should go away , but dont play with it too much it will take longer .
