Hi..  It could be because of a local inflammation, probably due to injury.. You can try glycerine application and vitamin supplementation for recovery.. However the exact cause can be determined only after an examination by a doctor..

My 6 yr old grandson came to me with a small lump on the front right side (his left) of his neck. Its the size of a small marble. Its painful to the touch but not otherwise. It is more pronounced when he lifts his head, his throat doesn t hurt, no pain in swallowing, he hasn t been sick in quite awhile, no cuts or bites have been present. Seems to be eating normally for his age. His parents aren t aware of it yet so I have no idea how long its been there. What could it be in a child his age? Should we be worried?

For the past 8 years (approx) I have had 6 small lumps on my neck, 3 on each side. They are nearly identically located on each side, one on it own and two together. None of them cause any pain, discomfort or are sore to touch. Now, 8 months ago I discovered a small lump near my groin, I dont how long it was there before that because I actually never checked there. It is quite small and hasn t changed size. Now, about 4 weeks ago, just above my adams apple, to the left I got a small lump and the outer skin on that area because sore to touch, that has cleared up and now, I am left with a painless lump, which seems to span withways, about a cm. Painless to touch and hard to find unless you tilt your head right back. I could jusy be getting overexcited, I dont know. As a child I suffered very bad with ear infections once or twice a year and had gromits and my adnoids done. For the past 2-3 years my lifestyle has been quite unhealty due to stress and have been consuming a lot of alcohol.
