6. It's not bother me I just pay a lot of attenece to my body. It doesn't hurt or anything.
7. I can attached the picture. But picture dont show any swelling. It's just if I move my head down and the skin stretch then I can feel something soft.

Hi... Thank you for getting back with the requested necessary information.
From your symptom analysis and correlating it with the history that I have gathered from you I put forth these possibilities -
1. Small suboccipital lymph node.
2. Small lipoma or a subcutaneous collection of fat.
3. Fibroma or an accumulation of fibrous tissue.
All the above three conditions are very very common in general population and need not be investigated or worried about it all.
You can be rest assured that this is not going to harm you in anyway or that it is related to a pathological process.
I suggest that it is an incidental finding and you need not be worried about at all."If you need more help, please reply to continue our conversation. If you do not require further assistance, your 5-star rating at this time is greatly appreciated".

the lipoma or fat will feel it with finger when I press or touch it?
Doctor: Sumanth Amperayani, Board Certified MD replied 3 months ago
you can feel a lipoma, which is an encapsulated fat mass with your finger and it will be soft to touch and compressible.

Hi, is it normal that the lipoma or fat mass on my neck can feel it with my finger? But if I move my head like up I didn't feel it.
Doctor: Sumanth Amperayani, Board Certified MD replied 3 months ago
Hi... It is very much possible because when you extend your neck, the back of your neck will become more relaxed and the lipoma will get embedded and you may not be able to feel it.When you flex your neck the back of your neck will become extended and the lipoma will become more prominent and you will be able to feel it.

Oh I see. That's is exactly how I felt
Doctor: Sumanth Amperayani, Board Certified MD replied 3 months ago
Hi... That is the exact reason why I told you that you need not worry about it at all.
As you have admitted that you are more concerned about your health and body, I feel that you should get yourself down on your health anxiety. I am sorry to say this but I have to guide you as a Health Care professional.
I again reassure you that you are perfectly healthy and this small swelling is nothing pathological.Please put out your Healthcare anxiety and calm yourself down and first start self suggesting yourself that you are a perfectly healthy individual.Is there anything else where I can be of assistance to you regarding this swelling in the Nape of neck please.Best regards ***** ***** Sumanth Amperayani

Is lipoma is normal to human?
Doctor: Sumanth Amperayani, Board Certified MD replied 3 months ago
Lipoma is an extremely common fat encapsulation and it is very very common in humans and many times it need not be treated unless for aesthetic purposes.

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.
