    Lump around titanium plate

    I had a titanium plate put in for a neck fusion about 8 years ago. I now feel a lump on the right side of it. It is a little painful. Any idea what this could be? Anyone else have this issue?

    Re: Lump around titanium plate

    I would imagine the lump is a small collection of fluid that has not drained away...and has become trapped, but it is always a good idea to get it checked out just to be sure. There is so little room in the neck for anything "extra" that the slightest change becomes noticeable.

    Try not to worry, but do get it checked out.
