Thank you for posting your query.
First, the condition needs to be diagnosed. Clinical examination may give a clue, however, an ultrasound examination would tell us whether it is a lymph node or not. MRI of the cervical spine can confirm whether the mass has any connection to the spinal cord or not.
The mass can be removed by surgery in either of the cases.
Please consult a neurosurgeon for opinion.
Please get back if you require any additional information.
