Back Neck and Spine

Could you have cancer if you have a pea-sized lump on the lower left back of your neck that has been there for a few months or could it be a symptom of another ailment?

If it's a skin discoloration with irregular shape and other

signs of skin cancer, he/she should see a physician. If it's a lump

under the skin, and there isn't really much to see, it's probably a

subcutaneous cyst, meaning an oil gland that got closed off and

grows internally. If that's the case, it's not a big deal. Either

way, if you're concerned, see a doctor to be reassured or treated

as the case may be.
