Hello Otniel,


Thank you for the question.

The appearance of a small lump in the right neck is most often caused by an enlarged lymph node (lymphadenopathy). This enlarged lymph node can occur if you have an infection (such as tuberculosis, HIV, toxoplasmosis), inflammatory disorders (such as lupus, rheumatoid arthritis), tumors (such as leukemia, lymphoma), or also the side effects of certain medications.


It could also be that a small lump in your neck arises due to other factors, such as lipomas, folliculitis, acne, abscesses, sebaceous cysts, warts, thyroid cysts, thyroid nodules, skin tags, and so on.


Lumps in the neck can refer to serious illness, or may not. To be sure, you really need to see yourself directly to the doctor or surgeon. Usually, the doctor can identify the cause and the appropriate treatment related to the lump, enough with a physical examination, ultrasound, x-rays, CT scan, biopsy, blood test, or other supporting tests.


In the meantime, you are advised not to manipulate any bumps on your neck. Improve your personal hygiene, do not give any treatment to the lumps, and be disciplined to maintain cleanliness and live a healthy lifestyle so that the bumps do not enlarge.


I hope this helps.
