lump in neck?

This morning I noticed my parakeet on the floor of his cage.  When I approached him he his head was turned to the right, there is a "lump" on the front of his neck and he is having trouble standing up straight.  I have had him about 4 years and he has never had any problems.  Any suggestions of what could be the problem or if there is anything I can do???

You need to get him to a vet as soon as possible. Sitting in the bottom of the cage and being unable to stand up straight are never good signs, and he needs veterinary attention immediately.
Hope he'll be okay, poor little birdie!

I wonder if his crop is blocked. A crop that doesn't empty properly can build up with bacteria (sour crop) and he could die. Definitely, get him to a vet.
