need advice please

a few months ago, i was rubbing the back of my neck when i noticed a hard lump in the center but a bit on the left side, in what seems to be connected to the muscle. it's about the size of a nickel, and i can best feel it when i tilt my head towards my right shoulder. i'm going to make an appointment with my doctor, but i'd like some advice please! freaking out!
if any of you have any questions, feel free to ask!

Re: need advice please

Hard to say...it could be a strained muscle, a fatty tumor (non-cancerous), a bulging disc (no, they don't always hurt). See your doctor soon so that a) you can find out what it is and b) you won't waste weeks worrying about it.
