Hello,

I want to get some more detail information about your problem-

How large it is ?

The exact position between neck & shoulder , which side?

Is there any pulsation in it?

Is it increasing in size or remaining constant?

Waiting for your reply.

Thank you.

Thank you for the information .

From the history of its consistency it seems like that it may be a lipoma or may be any cyst.

Lipoma is a collection of fat cells forming a benign swelling.

Cyst is a collection of liquid in a sac commonly being sebaceous cyst.

But they usually does not change their sizes.

As the size is also big you should consult your doctor to be certain about its origin.



I hope this will help. If you need clarifications, please ask.
