neck cyst

hi i noticed a lump at the back of the neck (next to the nape of the neck) as far as i am concerned it developed while i was packing as something bit me at the exact spot where the cyst has now developed. Is this possible? i was told that it would disappear eventually but it has not gone smaller in the past year. i was also told that doctors wont remove it as in this specific spot there will be too much bleeding. any advice. i would like to get rid of it as it is starting to cause discomfort.
thank you

You definately have to consult a doctor for an examination. Depending on the findings, the doctor will be able to surgically remove the cyst.

The cyst can be due to an insect bite that has caused a chronic infection.
