Welcome to healthcare Magic!
The worm in the urine are extremely uncommon except in bedridden and neglected cases.
There are sometimes protein cast in urine that are mounds of urine tubules and look like worms.
Another possibility is that if your gut is harboring the worm like enterobius then it may travel in the urethral region and may get flushed to appear as if from urine.
Best approach is to take a urine sample with the WORM and a stool sample for ova and cyst separately and get them tested in laboratory.
I hope the advise would be informative and useful for you.
Take Care!

Because the query is unrelated, it is difficult to say, front of neck may have engorged veins, interconnected veins or lymphatic congestion.
if you can load a photograph; may be I can help you more optimally.
