Got a Medical Question? Ask a Doctor Online!
Hi. Dr Rick here. I completed an Internal medicine internship in NYC and have two decades of clinical experience. How can I assist you today?
Nope. No gland there but, maybe it is an infected hair follicle
But, if it doesn't go away by Monday, I'd have a doctor take a look at it.
Does this make sense to you?
Are you available to chat?
That could be a sebaceous cyst, but it would be in an unusual position on your neck and, usually, they do not swell when touched.
The best thing to do is get it checked out. There are a lot of important structures in this area :)
have a good weekend.
