Thank you for posting your query.
First, the condition needs to be diagnosed. Clinical examination may give a clue, however, an ultrasound
examination would tell us whether it is a lymph
node or not. MRI
of the cervical spine
can confirm whether the mass has any connection to the spinal cord
The mass can be removed by surgery in either of the cases.
Please consult a neurosurgeon for opinion.
Please get back if you require any additional information.
