Bulge at back of neck

Just today I noticed a lump at the back of my neck. It was probably about the 2 centimeters across. It was soft and squishy and protruded a lot when I held my head up. If I tilted my chin toward my chest, the lump disappeared. Head up; lump reappears.
There is no pain with it. Not even when I pressed on it slightly.
Could this be the beginning of a herniated disc? What can I do to help alleviate it myself?
I am a 57 year old otherwise healthy female.

Thanks
Karen
