Hi, I have a little ball like on my neck, to the left side from thyroid cartilage. I first noticed it a month ago when i got the flu, since then i fell it is a bit smaller thought I am not sure. Thanks!
The majority of neck lumps are reactive lymph nodes when our body fights an infection such as flu. Normally they reduce in size and settle once the primary source of infection is treated.
Having had this swelling for a month, we would suggest to see your GP. They can examine you and establish if this is a normal or abnormal lump that requires further investigations.
