Hard Lump On The Back Neck?
Hello doctor. I want to ask, if there is a hard lump (it feels like there is a bent bone) on the back of the neck what is it? Previously had an accident and often read while leaning, is that dangerous?
Lumps in the neck area can be caused due to various causes. Some conditions that can cause lumps in the neck such as:
Normal variations of broken neck bone / bone dislocation inflammation of certain lymphoma lipoma tumors If indeed you have had an accident, then a lump in the neck may be caused due to bone disorders such as fractures or bone dislocation. Broken bones and bone displacement can cause palpable lumps in the area around the neck, and also usually accompanied by pain. In addition, broken bones can also cause bruising of the surrounding muscles, which can also make lumps more visible. Bone disorders due to accidents can be dangerous, especially if they occur in the neck region.
Therefore, to ascertain the cause of your situation, you should check directly to the doctor, so that the doctor can examine your situation further. Maybe later additional tests will be carried out such as blood tests, x-rays, or CT Scan / MRI. Don't take any medicine, and don't massage the lump. It is recommended that you read in an upright sitting position.
