Talk to you doctor and show them your lump.  Is it located near where the Thyroid might be?  (Google pictures) It could be many things.  I’m not trying to worry you, if it in that area.  About 10 % of the population has lumps on their thyroid.  Before you freak, 90% are benign tumors.  Most of the time they don’t affect us at all and are just watched by doctors.

The only reason I know all this is because my doc found a lump in my neck.

Sounds like one of your lymph nodes is enlarged or tender due to infection, allergies, or otherwise. I would get it checked out by a Doctor who can palpate it and determine whether it is fixed or moveable, and do further investigations as to what might be going on. I would also get EBV (mononucelosis/glandular fever) tested. Hope you feel better soon!

Are you feeling the lump in your throat or on your neck?  I get both, one is quite serious.

Definitely get a doctor to check! I have a lymph node that got enlarged once upon a time and just kinda stayed that way, but the only way to know that’s what’s going on (as opposed to something serious) is have your doctor check it and run the appropriate tests.
