Back of Neck Bumps and Blue Anime Model

Most bumps on the back of the neck, particularly those near the hairline, are harmless. These include cysts, boils, and swollen lymph nodes. However, if a bump causes pain or it does not go away after a few days, you should see your doctor. Many of these lumps can be easily removed in the doctor’s office. You should also see a dermatologist if you notice any unusual moles or changes in skin color.
