Are neck lumps malignant? What are the symptoms of cancerous or non-cancerous neck lumps and should I see a specialist if the neck lump is painless?
There are many causes of a neck lump, causes which may include trauma, infection, benign cysts and tumors, inflammatory diseases and cancer. The most common cause of neck lumps is lymph node swelling which occurs due to an infectious process, such as strep throat. Commonly, neck lumps are associated with viral and bacterial infections such as abscesses, boils, colds, infected tooth, flu, mumps, strep throat, and tonsillitis.
In some rare cases, they can also be an indicator of a more serious disease such as cancer, or thyroid gland diseases. Taking into consideration the description of your neck lump, it could also be a cyst, which is caused by the blockage of a gland. Despite the fact that it does not hurt and you do not find it uncomfortable, you should always have neck lumps checked by a specialist, because if left untreated, they can lead to more serious complications, such as difficulties in breathing.
