Hello. Welcome to Healthcare Magic.
Your history is interesting. As you probably know, granuloma annulare
(GA) is a non-cancerous, chronic skin condition that tends to wax and wane over time. While GA is often an isolated condition, it is sometimes associated with other underlying disorders, such as infectious mononucleosis
, autoimmune illnesses (thyroiditis
, lupus, rheumatoid arthritis
, etc.) and certain malignancies (e.g., Hodgkin's lymphoma) -- all of which can cause lymph node enlargement.
The fact that the lump on your neck has essentially resolved is reassuring. At this point, unless you're having other symptoms (weight loss, night sweats
, fatigue, joint pain, etc.) there probably isn't a need for further investigation.
I hope that answers your question!
