Hi all, my sister has got a HUGE lump on the back of her neck and going down to between her shoulder blades (its probably about the size of a melon cut in half) it has got this big in approx 2 weeks and is causing her a bit of pain. It is so bad that she cannot hold her neck up straight. I think she is to worried to go to the doctors..does anyone have any idea what it could be please as i am so worried about it?
Hi and welcome to the back and neck support forum.
I am so sorry to hear ur sister is in such pain.....was she involved in a MVA?....a fall?....I am not a medical professional, but I would wonder if it was a knotted muscle.....how long a period of time did it develope?
I would suggest u talk her into seeing a dr and get it MRI'd.
Our backs/spines are too delicate to just guess and try to fix on our own.....
