Thanks for writing to us.
A lump in the neck is most likely to be an enlarged lymph node. It is not likely to be related to the pregnancy. A direct examination is needed to know the nature of teh lump and to comment whether a surgical removal is needed or not. You can take a second opinion in person for clarification.
I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you.
Lump in the neck , specially after delivery will need to be checked whether it is from the lymph node , thyroid or some tumor growth . It is not common to see the lump after pregnancy . They might need to take a sample from the tissue by fine needle aspiration technique and send the cells for study in the pathology department .
Thanks and Take care
