I noticed this lump about two years ago, and I brushed it off. Each day I get more and more concerned, but of course the Internet makes everyone paranoid when it comes to being diseased. Every thing I search always leads to some form of cancer. So anyways this lump is small and round and whenever I touch it, it feels sore. The left side of my neck is always really tight which is how I found the lump while rubbing my neck to relax the muscle. I am only eighteen and I feel extremely fatigued all the time. I just feel as though I am dragging myself around. Someone please give me some sort of answer, being clueless makes me livid....seriously.
I have Scoliosis, and I had it surgically corrected when I was Eleven years old. My upper spine is fused so that is immobile. My back is constantly popping and crackling. I mention this because my Gram says that maybe I have a pinched nerve it my neck.
Just trying to provide as much information as possible because Cancer is not something I would love to have....)^;
A lump can be a number of things. Cancer is unlikely though being that it has not grown significantly in two years and if it were a lymphoma you would have multiple swollen nodes throughout the body.
Some possibilities could be a blocked lymph node, a cyst, an underlying bone spur, muscle pushing through a tear, etc.
Scoliosis is actually very easy to fix if they had not already done the spinal fusion. All you can do now is support the bones, cartilage tendons and ligaments. The primary nutrient for this is silica, followed by vitamin C.
