    I get a rather large swelling on the back of my neck - docs dont know why - UK of course, very little testing here.

    Does anyone else get this and do you know why??

    Does it come and go, or is it there continually?

    Does it come and go? If so, it could be a lymph node. I had one on the base of my skull for a while a few years ago. Not sure why, doc didn't know either but said I might have had it from a minor viral infection - it's gone now.

    If it's large and is permanently there, I would ask for a biopsy just to make sure it's OK.

    Love Bunchy (also in the UK....sigh)
