its about the length of the tip of my index finger. not really a circle shape. I can only feel it when I turn and position my neck a certain way.

you cant see it. its under the skin.

This could be a sebaceous cyst (wax filled sac), fibroma (benign growth) lipoma (fatty tumor). It is not in a location where a Lymphoma would form. May I suggest you schedule a visit to your PCP to have it evaluated and if needed drained or removed.

Thank you for allowing me to provide assistance.

I am available to answer any additional questions you may have.

I hope your medical problem(s) are resolved soon and you feel better. If you find the information I provided helpful, so I am compensated for my service, please rate me with 5-Stars. Thank you

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
