Is it a bone? The only person who can give you an answer is a doctor...

Go to the GP and don't worry. Think you have to call for an appointment.

It’ll be some fatty tissue or a cyst no doubt. Get it checked out but there are loads of non serious things it could be and the odds of it being anything is tiny. If it is movable it is even less likely to be serious.

I wouldn’t use Google for something like this or a student website.
I feel Google tends to assume the worst as soon as you type the word ‘bump on neck’. 😂

I think it does with any health issue you type in!

i always hear that but in my experience most of the websites are quite informative, especially nhs ones. in any case, its a stupid question to ask on a student forum when there are websites that explain what the lump might be, or better yet, a doctor.

idk why op is expecting us to be able to diagnose them with cancer on a student forum
