Patient :I have been having neck tightness, ear fullness, my trap and scm muscles have been tight. I've had x-ray of shoulder w/o any findings. After doing two weeks of pt I've notice a rock hard lump that is located right behind my trap muscle in the area that is close to the levitator. it is in the back about 2 inches off my c-spine. I wasn't sure if this is a lymph node. I can barely feel it if my arm is down but when I raise my arm over my head I feel it. It is round and hard w/o pain. Any idea what this is? I do have an MRI in 4 days but was trying to find some insight so I can ask the right questions.
