I am a fairly active, healthy 35 year old woman. I have noticed the left side of the back of my skull where it kindof sticks out on both sides seems harder and bigger than the right side. After a jog the other day, I noticed just below that about an inch on my neck, a small hard knot, under the skin, not noticable on teh exterior, not painful, does not move around, but it is definitely large enough to feel and find without much feeling around. I am concerned. What are some things this might be? Do you think it is imperative to see the doctor, or something that I need to watch?

i found a lump on the right side of my neck 2 years ago, about 3 mnths ago, the right side of my neck feels very tight sometimes, and its very umcomfortable to where i have to keep my head to the right so it stops. i went to the doctors and had an ultrasound, the lump did not change in size first doctor said it was goiters...so i went to a ear, nose and throat doctor they put a camera up my nose and said everything was great, she said something about multinodular...i told her about my neck, i also feel like i cant swallow and my throat feels like its closing, she said it was prolly acid reflux, or stress...ive also lost 10 pounds in like 2 mnths without trying...what could it be?
