Best Answer

This sounds like a benign fatty tumor [do you have any on your back or legs?]. Lymph nodes are firm and NOT fatty-feeling; they also can increase and shrink in size. Fatty tumors do not. If it bothers you a general surgeon can easily removed it for you.

What could a hard painless fixed lump on the top right side of a 14 year old's neck about 1 inch in size be?

There are things called "bone spurs" and "fatty lumps." Bone spurs are hard and a fatty lump can feel solid, but mooshy and move around when you touch it. However, I am not a doctor and any lump should be examined by a doctor. They will probably take a needle biopsy from the lump (doesn't hurt) or if too hard they certainly will do a scan. Please see your doctor right away.
