What Are The Causes Of Pain And Stiffness In Neck?

After waking up my neck is stiff and in pain. I can't turn my head right or tilt it back without the right side of my neck hurting, my aunt is a great massagist and said I had a knot and felt like a bone in my neck. Then after my massage the spot/knot where my neck hurts it grew/swelled to a big bump and she said that's weird. What happened to my neck? What's wrong with it? And how can I fix it?

First, lab inbestigations like CBC, c reactive protein and cervical spine and brain x-ray should be done. These done to exclude lymph node inflammations or malignancy or cervical spondylesis.
