I'm trying not to be too worried, 'cause with me, you never know what is what sometimes...yesterday, I found a lump on my neck, near the base of my skull, on the left side. It's firm, the size of a pea and hurts a bit. My whole neck hurts, but I have fibromyalgia, so my neck and back always hurt- making it challenging to determine if this is new.
I could go get it checked, but honestly I am trying to avoid the doctor's office! If I have to I will- either way, I'm not planning on any medical intervention anytime soon.
That being said, should I worry? I did a few searches, and I know that this can be due to many factors. I have other lumps in my neck, but they are more pliable- they are hardish, but also a bit 'moveable' and squishy too. This one doesn't seem to be.
