He does not have a fever , and the spot is not hot. He did have some odd rash last week 9- individual bumps around his neck, then his belly and back. He has also lost some weight in the last month.

Hi, Thanks for using the HCM.
your description suggestive like, could be a lymphnode enlargement in neck if its firm in consistency, better to consult a surgeon or ENT physician for further examination of swelling. and as you are mentioning loss of weight, you need to consult a doctor as early as possible to investigate for cause of swelling in neck.
Hope I have answered your query. If you have any further questions I will be happy to help. Thanks get well soon....
