Are small lumps on the side of neck a sign of cancer?

Postby archard » Sat Dec 07, 2013 3:02 am

When person was younger they had 2 lumps on the side of their neck that felt round and one felt the size of a large blueberry while the other which was close to the first, was about an inch in diameter. They could be moved a little but they felt connected to something and were fairly painful. It was not lymph nodes. Also, person's father was exposed to atomic bomb tests, radiation, and agent orange. He later developed a goiter the size of a baseball in his neck on his thyroid gland and had to have both removed but it wasn't cancerous.
