so, here's the question, I was rubbing my neck today, and there is this little bump on the back of my neck, it's on the right side, and it's right under my hair line. It does not cause me any pain unless I apply pressure, even then, it doesn't really hurt. It is not big at all, what could this be? Would I need to go to the doctor? I'm 15 BTW.
My son has the same bump and I took him to the doctors because I was worried but they told me not to worry that it was just his lymph nodes. They said it becomes swollen if your body is fighting an infection or something.
