Lump on the neck hardened after trying to squeeze it. Should be concerned?

So, I noticed a small lump on my neck , and I started to pick at it, and squeeze it, but no matter how hard I tried nothing would come out, so I took a sterilized needle and lanced it, and then tried to squeeze it. Clear liquid then came from it when I would squeeze hard enough. it s the day after I did this, so overnight, it scabbed, but it s still there, that hard lump what should I do?

Dermatologist 's  Response
Hello dear.
Thanks for the query.
Lump on neck might be an infected cyst.
As you squeezed it, there might have been a bleed in that.
This can aggravate the infection.
This surely is a matter of concern .
Please meet a dermatologist.
Thank you
