    If you're going to worry about it, go to the doctors instead of asking random people on the Internet. No one on here is really in a position to diagnose you!

    I don't think anyone here is qualified to give you a diagnosis (I don't think even doctors are able to give accurate diagnosis over the Internet, let alone students on a forum), so I recommend you book an appointment to see your GP. It's probably nothing, but there's no harm in getting it checked out...

    my professional opinion is that.

    youve been abducted by some sort of alien race and had some sort of tracking device installed that will probibly self destruct after 2 or so years killing you and all around you.

    Might be your spine. Might be a small cyst (got one in my arm in a bizarre swing accident :rolleyes: ). Might be hair. Might be a parasite. Might be eyes in the back of your head. Might be something else.

    It's probably a gland in the back of your neck; there are lots of lymph nodes all the way up your neck and its probably just one of them. I used to be a hypochondriac, I know this stuff!

    not a doc or anythin but if its painless and been there a while its probably just benign (harmless) however check wiv a doc just to take it off ure mind
    he will probably send u to a specialist though but dont worry

    werid! I have the acutally same thing but mine is at the top of neck just below the start of my hair. My hurts when touched though so I'm seeing the doctor later this week, I'll tell you what he says.

    My friend jokes that it is all the french knowledge I knew in June is leaking out!

    If you've had a cold or something recently, i could be a lymth node. Go to the doctor.

    i've got one of my lymph nodes up on my head and i'm really paranoid because i stupidly let an overly enthusiastic med student try and give me a diagnosis... my advice never ever let a doctor in training any where near you. I spent last night crying becasue my "prognosis" was v v bleak. When i phoned up the doc they said it was probably cos i've had impacted wisdom teeth and my lymph nodes got clogged up and should disappear by itslef but they are going to check it out anyway just to put my mind at rest.
