Has nodule on cervical spine, below neck, has tenderness. What seems wrong?

My 17 yo son has a nodule on the right side of his cervical spine about 2 inches away and just below the neck. The nodule is approx 1-1.5cm in size and seems somewhat fixed and not real mobile. Should we possibly take him to be seen for this issue? No other symptoms noted and he states that tender when pushed on with pressure.

Hi, as you describe it appears to be a lymph gland, secondary to the boils, cuts, or head lice in the head. It may also be lipoma, but is is very soft.
I advise you to consult a surgeon for diagnosis and treatment.
I to my patient with such symptom prescribe, cifixime, diclophenac sodium, and vitamin C. Thank you.
