Swollen gland on the neck area

Hi Doc,

I have noticed for the last 3 -4 weeks that I have this swollen gland on my neck near to my head. I' m not sure what is causing this. It' s not painful (maybe sometimes when I lay to long on my head) but other than that nothing.

It is now worrying because people are saying it could be serious. Please help Im very worried.

Hallo Lee
Let your doctor have a look - it may be an infected sebaceous gland or a cyst or it may be a lymph gland that is swollen due to infection somewhere in the head or neck area.
