User :   Hi yesterday i went to the doctor to get a lump on my neck checked out. turned out it was a muscle. but before that apt i kept rubbing it nervously well everything was all fine until this morning when my neck was sore. Then as the day went on i developed a small headache and later that day naseau that would kinda go away after burping. Im wondering if i should be worried if its a brain tumor.
