Lump in Neck

Posted by GeorGina


I am a little concerned about a lump on the left side of my neck just above the clavical and almost in line with my left ear.  I am a forty year old always healthy female.  I have had it now for a number of weeks.  It is never painfull, but sometimes it feels warmer in that side of my neck, at least that's the best way I can describe it.  I have not been sick, no colds, flu, or any infections.  I did have a lower left tooth removed four weeks ago, that did have a large abcess attached to it.  The dentist said it was the largest abcess she had ever seen

However the lump was there before the tooth removal and is still there after the tooth removal.  In size it feels like an inch approximately, but visibly it looks larger.

I am new to this country and have no doctor here.  What should I do? 

Look forward to hearing from you.
