Hi Everyone,

I just recently noticed that there have been a small lump on my neck. I thought that I should just wait it out and maybe it will go away. The lump was big but then miraculously went away. Then the next day I found another lump on the left side of my neck. About the size of a small marble. I thought to just wait it out again, but then another lump appeared a couple days later. Then a few days after I found another and then another and now I have 4 small lumps on my neck and I am really scared that I could have cancer or a worse disease! Please help!!!

How about going to the doctor. It is impossible for anyone here to diagnose you.

Good luck!!

If you are taking iron containing vitamins, STOP!!! NOW!!!

You may be suffering from Iron overdose.

Also a bacterial infection might be likely. Something to the like of subcutaneous cysts or boils.

This is the best advice you can have here. GO see an MD. Any attempts to diagnose you based on this without an actual physical exam or diagnotic imagry etc. is a shot in the dark at best, fatal at worst.

Go see a doctor! Don't worry yourself until then, but make an appointment and they'll check you out.

That makes no sense at all. Just go to the doctor it's free for you. I wouldn't worry too much puberty does strange things to you.

13 huh? Score one for the acne guess. In all seriousness, a doctors visit wouldn't hurt. Have your parents not seen the lumps?

I highly doubt you have cancer. Are your nodes swollen or is it random bumps all over your neck?

What to do is go to the doctor.

If you are this scared, it is your only option.

Taken From: www.umm.edu...

"There are many causes of lumps in the neck. The most frequently seen lumps or swellings are enlarged lymph nodes, which can be caused by bacterial or viral infections, malignancy, or other rare causes.

Enlargement of the salivary glands under the jaw may result from infection or malignancy. Lumps in the muscles of the neck -- almost always in the front of the neck -- result from injury or torticollis. Lumps in the skin or just below the skin are often caused by cysts, including sebaceous cysts.

The thyroid gland may also produce a lump, multiple lumps, or swelling in the neck as a result of thyroid disease or malignancy. Most cancers of the thyroid gland are extremely slow-growing and often curable by surgery even if they have been present for several years.

All neck lumps in children and adults should be checked immediately. In children, most of them are caused by treatable infections. However, treatment should start quickly to prevent either spread of the infection or complications. As adults age, the likelihood of the lump being a cancer does increase, particularly for those who smoke or drink significant amounts of alcohol. Fortunately, most lumps in adults are not cancers."

I figure the last sentence might calm you down.

You know what you need to do! Go see your Dr. I remember at your age I thought I had meningitis, I was too scared to see a Dr. also turns out it was nothing and I wasted my whole summer worrying. Just go

Surely, if nothing else, you can have the nurse at your school look at it.

Does your school have a nurse's office??

First of all....GO SEE A DAMN DOCTOR AND STOP COMPLAINING!!

Secondly, it may be a sebaceous cyst (certainly sounds like one). These are no problem unless they become infected. 3 weeks ago I had a severely infected one on my back, which ended with me having it cut out under local anaesthetic. All that happens is they give you several needles to numb the area and will slice open the area and pull out the cyst. I wont lie because even though you have the area numbed, it may still hurt a bit.

Like I said, if it is a sebaceous cyst, they usually go away after time, and only become a problem if they get infected.
