Two days ago I woke up with a pea sized lump on the back of my neck didn t pay it any mind because it wasn t hurting nor was it as big.however,yesterday when I woke up the lump got to a pea size and it was hurting I also felt two others forming and the smaller ones hurt more.this morning the small one is getting bigger maybe like a Lima bean now and the third is further up into my hair and. It hurts. Also from yesterday it feels like electric shocks are going into the top of my head from these lumps . Could u tell me what this might be.also in September I did a cats an because I had severe headaches which was as a result of a uti .which cleared. I m African American.

Since your lumps are of recent onset and painful first thing that is coming in my mind is acute lymphadenitis.this is a condition in which lymphnodes are suddenly and painfully enlareged due to infection in their draining area.
In your case i think there is some focus of infection in your scalp region..A visit to physician is advised.
hope thiswill help you.take care!

Ophthalmologist Dr. Sushama Suram's  Response
Welcome to HCM..
Was the pain started with swelling or present before?
It could be a superficial bacterial skin infection...
You can try a course of antibiotic like cefixime which controls the infection.
You can take pain killer if the pain is severe..
If you still have the pain, you can consult the physician to rule out any possibility of cervical spondylitis...
Take care...
