Right Back Neck Lump Accompanied By A Throbbing Headache?
. I’m Astila, 17 years old. Want to ask. When I felt the back of my neck, suddenly there was a lump. On the back right near the upper cervical vertebrae. The lump is small, but feels heavy on the head, and a little nutty. Is that a serious illness? Please answer. Thank you doctor🌹
Good evening Astila, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com. Lumps on the back of the neck, can mean many things, including:

It needs to be done a direct examination to be able to ascertain which of the above possibilities most closely matches your condition. Our advice, you should check your condition at a general practitioner to do a history and physical examination by identifying the lump directly.
From there it can be seen the diagnosis, the severity, and can also be known whether or not serious, although usually a serious disease that has a characteristic enlarged quickly, bleeding, uneven shape, and has caused many other serious disorders. The treatment that you will receive later also depends on the results of this examination, including if you find that you need a specialist doctor, such as a skin specialist, surgeon, or others.
Meanwhile, do not press or squeeze the lump, if there is dizziness or pain, take over-the-counter pain medication by reading the rules of use listed and not applying anything to the lump. No need to worry too much, but immediately check your condition. So, hopefully answering your question.
