Numbness in forefinger, swelling and bump on neck. Advise

My husband is 39 years old. He is a computer professional. From past almost 4 months he is working in night shifts. He is from past 20 days feeling slight numbness on the back of his right hand forefinger. Also we are observing some swelling and bump kind of thing on the backside of his neck (mid of the two shoulders) from past three days. Kindly advise us on the problem. Thank you

Thanks for writing to us.
The numbness on the back of the hand is likely to be related to a nerve related problem. The prominence on the back of the neck needs to be examined and nerve compression at the level of cervical spine needs to be ruled out.
I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you.
