Neck that has gradually getting more swollen

Hey guys,

A friend of mine just told me today that her neck seems to have swollen up a little since she last checked, and when she showed it to her mom, her mom said that it is indeed a bit swollen (all around the neck). What's frightening is that, according to her mom, she has already noticed the swelling since she was young, albeit wasn't as noticeable as it is now. We're all greatly concerned for her health, so can anyone help us out as to giving us more information about this situation. Thank you everyone!

-Peter

Re: Neck that has gradually getting more swollen

If it's been going on for years, it's probably NOT cancer. Goiter is a common cause of swollen neck, or it could be she just naturally has a thick neck.
