lump on neck?

Not sure what this is. I thought is was going to be a pimple, got big and red (which I helped by trying to squeeze it...such a bad habit.) Then after consciously leaving it alone in hopes that it would go away, it has just remained a hard painless lump the size of a pea. I can grab it and move it, I mean it stays in the same spot, but its not attached to anything inside, its definitely in the layers of skin (its on my neck to the left of the adams apple.) Should I be concerned?

Re: lump on neck?

Any lump that doesnt resolve on its own should be checked by a doctor. I dont want to alarm you but I was 34 when diagnosed with cancer, with the only symptom being a hard painless lump on my neck. Again, I dont mean to alarm you but I would rather you err on the side of caution than have it be something bad that you didnt have looked at. Please let us know how you get on.
