OK
This type of sensation is often from nerve irritation.
The lump needs to be examined...it is probably a lipoma..sometimes these can cause odd sensations but are harmless.
Problems in the spine can radiate nerve pain tingling etc.
Diabetes can cause this type of sensation, as can other systemic disease.

Have an exam, routine labs, thyroid labs, as well as anything else indicated by the exam. In some cases an MRI is needed.
