Thanks for asking HealthReplies.com.
Lumps that occur on the back of your neck can be related to several conditions, including:
Lipoma Cyst Atheroma Enlarged lymph nodes Skin Tag Abscess, a lump formed by the accumulation of pus, usually preceded by a previous infection. Lymphoma Seeing so many conditions that may be associated with your complaint, direct examination by a doctor needs to be done. Whether or not your complaint is dangerous or not is uncertain, the doctor needs to conduct medical questions and answers, physical examination and other supporting examinations such as laboratory, biopsy, or CT-Scan in accordance with the doctor's advice. This examination is to find out the cause, so that the diagnosis can be made and the appropriate treatment can be given.
Observe the following:
The lump is getting bigger Feels hard, can't be moved Causes pain Accompanied by other symptoms such as fever Weight loss Immediately consult a doctor, if you experience any of the above symptoms, to avoid complications or the course of the disease to a more severe direction.
Consumption of nutritious foods, avoid cigarette smoke, alcohol and foods that contain a lot of MSG, increase the consumption of water and avoid picking the lumps.
That's all I can say, hopefully useful.
