How to treat pain and lump in the neck area?

I have been having headaches for four days now, but ibuprofen has helped. Yesterday I also had neck pain on the lower left side of my neck near thyroid. Today I have all the same symptoms and noticed a lump in the area where there is pain. I won t have health insurance for another 2 months. Should I wait to have this checked out?

Hi,

Yes, you should check this out, due to presence of lump, sooner or later it may cause obstructive symptoms. It should be examined physically. Kindly get to the nearest general surgery department.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
Dr. Parkavi Gunasekaran, General & Family Physician
