User :   I have just found tonight a very hard lump above my clavicle on the right side of my neck. It is about the size of a marble and does not move when I swallow or breathe. It was not there 2 weeks ago, it is not painful and was found incidentally whilst using gel to ease a sore neck / headache. My other glands are not swollen, other side of my neck is fine with no lumps. Just want to make sure that I don't embarrass myself by going to a dr for something like a swollen gland. I don't have a sore throat nor do I feel sick. I just have had headaches because my neck is out I think and am tired. Is this something that is just a simple gland thing?
Doctor :   hello
User :   hi :)
Doctor :   give me a min let me read your query
Doctor :   may i know your age and gender please ?
User :   female, 33yo
Doctor :   ok well there is nothing known as a simple gland thing
Doctor :   it can be goiter, which does need to be medical examined
Doctor :   swollen glands also can be due to a underlying infection
User :   even when it isnt in the centre of my neck?
Doctor :   the location can vary
User :   oh ok, can you have an underlying infection without realising it?
Doctor :   you need to get your thyroid levels tested
Doctor :   yes you can
Doctor :   like i said SIMPLE GLAND THING is not right
Doctor :   so you need to go to the physician
User :   ah ok, well i will definitely take a trip to the dr then bc i didn't realise you can be sick without realising it, like i said i only noticed this thing tonight
Doctor :   dont worry no symptoms does means its something minor
User :   thank you so much again, i had no idea no simple gland thing wasn't real
User :   no probs thanks again!
Doctor :   but still you got to do
