Lumps in my neck
For the past, I would say 6 months I've had multiple hard lumps underneath the skin of my neck. They don't stick out but if you feel them on the neck you can find them. I have 2 almost right beside each other Honestly, I think they are probably just cysts but seem to be growing and not going away which is slightly concerning. Im only 17 and im scared to talk to my mum or a doctor in case it's stupid and im overreacting. Would anybody be able to tell me if I talk to a doctor or if it's nothing to worry about? I know it's stupid to be asking on a forum but it's the only idea I've got.

@asesh Please dont worry as this may be something simple like a lymph node, which can grow in a number of areas of the body at any age.
You do need to see your doctor, who can refer you on to a specialist to check what it is and it is a very simply operation to have these growths removed, often under a local anesthetic so you don't feel a thing.
Make your appointment and let us know how you get on.
