Should I be conserned about this!!!!

About two years ago I noticed a small white (pea size) lump about an inch or two on the right side of my neck from my throat. It wasn't painful so I left it alone. It grew slightly bigger last year but I wasn't to conserned about it. Then last week it really took off it is about the size of a quarter in diameter, red all around with the white lump in the middle and painful. anyone got any ideas on what this could be????

I'm not sure what it could be, but it doesn't sound good. Normally any lump that grows, multiplies or changes colors can't be good! Since you've had it for quite some time, I doubt it's a bug bite or anything like that. So I'd make a doctor's appointment to have it check out. Has a doctor ever noticed or said anything about it before? In the mean time, try an image search for skin growths and see if any pictures come up matching what you've got!

It could be a natural growth that just happens to have been irritated by something the last couple of days... but I'd rather be safe then sorry.

It could be from your thyroid gland. Nodules can form in that area if you are hypothyroid and/or have hashimotos disease (you can look it up). The proper specialist to see would be an Endocrinologist.
