Lump in muscle. Please help me here.?
Okay, so 6 months ago, I felt a moderately sized lump in the back of my neck (one inch and a half, maybe), I went to go see my doctor, but he said it was a little lymph node, nothing to worry about. (I was thinking "Little?")

Today, it is about three inches wide.

I went again, on Friday and I got the same response.

The thing about the lump is that it is Very hard, and is under muscle (I can move muscle over it)

I am also very tired and weak.
I also have a swollen lymph node near the lump.

I did not sprain or tear my muscle, I did not have ANY infection.

What can cause a lump under muscle of this size?

And help and advice is appreciated.
I'll add additional details if needed.

Thank you :) Oh by the way, i'm 13.
Okay, and if you say ANYTHING about me faking this, I wont be happy.
I can assure you that it is 100% true.
Last time someone said i was faking, i cried for like an hour cause im tired of feeling sick. :S

Wow, you people are just great.

It is just stress

From your description it doesn't appear that the lump is attached directly to the muscle, but you can make sure yourself by contracting the muscle closest to the lump and seeing if the lump becomes immobile or strained as a result of you stretching that muscle. If you find it is not directly attached to the muscle, this is a good thing.

Swollen lymph nodes are your body's immune response to an infection (both viral and bacterial), illness (cold, flu, virus), or foreign substances (allergic reaction). The lump that is also in the same general region might be a different response but still a response to whatever it is causing your lymph nodes to swell.

Talk to your doctor about when and what might have influenced the growth of the lump and more importantly, the causes of your swollen lymph nodes. Swollen lymph nodes are common in teenagers and more common in children, so don't be too alarmed by that. You may find that whatever is causing this reaction in your lymph nodes may also be causing a different reaction that manifests itself as a "lump" in that region. It may actually BE a lymph node, not all lymph nodes are tender some are actually hard or firm.

The best thing to do is talk to your doctor about possible allergic reactions, or bacterial infections AND talk to him about taking antibiotics or medication to treat the cause. Also, try not to poke at or squeeze and move the lump around, you may be prolonging a possible lymph node from returning to normal.

I really hope you don't stress out too much worrying about this, stay calm and be patient. This kind of stuff takes lots of time, 3-5 weeks even.

Good luck!
