Patient

Q: Hi doc, i have been having constant headaches for a week now. Last night my husband noticed a large lump on my lower neck, in the backside. Should i be worried ? It doesnt hurt. Ive just had constant headaches.

Symptoms:  Constant mild headaches and upper back pain
Doctor

A:   Hello,
Thanks for the query.

Headache with a lump on the back of your neck will need an evaluation. Any tumor in the neck or a lymph node enlargement can compress the neurovascular bundle and cause a headache. It can lead to raised intracranial pressure and cause headache.
Kindly consult a neurologist for an examination and specific investigations to rule out the above causes and treat you accordingly.

Hope this was helpful.
Regards
