Severe neck pain radiating to shoulders. Lump on the neck. Could this be cancer?

I have been experiencing neck pain for about a month now. Whenever I move my neck the right side is very pain full from the top of my neck to the middle of my shoulder blades. It s very uncomfortable and nothing seems to ease the pain. Just recently I notice a small little bump right where my shoulder and neck meets. It doesn t move very much and it is the size of a dime, maybe a little bit smaller. Could this be cancer?

Hi, Thanks for query.
It seems that you might have enlarge cervical lymph node pressing upon neck muscles giving rise to this problem.
Nothing to worry about cancer.
There are few conditions where there is enlargement of lymph nodes.
Consult surgeon and get examined.
If require he may go for lymph node biopsy for diagnosis.
Ok and bye.
