Had bump on neck. Now one more. Lack of sleep, stings when touched, moved. What are these?

About a month ago I noticed a bump on my right side of my neck. When I apply pressure to the bump it stung a little, but I just ignored it. I recently started working at a gravel pit company so I just ignored it. The bump quit hurting after awhile, but remained on my neck. A few days ago though I noticed another smaller bump on my neck, right below the larger one. The stinging has come back and I lack sleep at night because of the stinging. When I turn my head a certain direction it my whole right side of my neck just stings. These bumps are underneath my skin, and so there are no redness to them so I know they aren't acne or anything like that. Does anyone know what these bumps are on my neck???

Thanks for postings your query to HCM.
As per your history and examination lumps (or you say bump) in neck can have three basic possibilities:
1.Lipoma- is a fatty tissue storage. This is referred to as It is a benign tumor in a fibrous capsule close to the skin. Lipomas usually develop in the neck, torso, thighs and armpits and are most often mistaken for cancerous tumors. However, lipomas are the most common non cancerous tumors that develop in the body. It can be surgically removed easily.
2. Sebaceous cyst- Again a simple condition almost similar to lipoma but have a central black color dor known as punctum. Treated same as above in lipoma.
3. Lymphadenitis: Swelling of lymph node due to some infection in face neck and chest. It is commonly caused by tonsillitis, sore throat, bacterial infection or dental infections or some viral infections.
It's best to get it properly diagnosed, to be able to know the precise cause of the bump in your neck, an immediate consultation with your doctor is a must.
Hope this information will help.
with best health wishes,
