What is this fleshy bulb on my neck?

A few weeks ago, I saw something developing on my neck. Didn't think it was a big deal, but it keeps growing. It's about the size of 4 dimes stacked together right now. It's a dark color, and it doesn't hurt at all. The sac is very fragile, and when I break it, bleeds profusely. Otherwise it just leaks a clear, slightly odorous fluid. It's just there, really, growing bigger. I have a large bandaid over it at all times to protect it from everything. However, I don't like that it's not going away. What could it be, what course of action should I take, and is there any way I could deal with it myself?

Not sure what it is.. I would have said a skin tab based on the topic, but they don't fill with fluid. Maybe a small external cyst? Not sure but I would go to your physician, or a dermatoligist preferrably if you have one.. either one should be able to examine it and remove it there in the office.
