What might a lump on the left side at the base of a neck indicate?

A lump at the front of the neck could be inflamed lymph nodes,

or an increase in one nodule of the thyroid gland which is a

butterfly shaped organ in the neck belonging to the endocrine

system. At the back of the neck a lump could be a muscle spasm or a

problem with a spinal vertebra.
