Hi,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

Please mention whether you have a lump from 13 years of age. Please mention whether you have done any surgery at childhood. Please mention whether you have any other problems. A lump can be bony protrusion or ossification of hematoma from childhood. Dermoid cyst or any other problems can also present like this. You can have a migraine headache or cervical spondylosis with radiculopathy. Do a X-ray of cervical spine in anteroposterior and lateral view. You can take tablet Naproxen 250 mg twice a day after food for five days. If there is no improvement, then consult a physician for examination and treat your condition accordingly. Have a review with your reports.
