On the right side of my neck I have a little lump like thing

Resolved Question:

Hi, on the right side of my neck I have a little lump like thing just under my main glad in the neck, it doesn't perturd from the skin! It's not painful and moves when I either move my neck up and down or when I rub my finger over it it moves! But is painless! I'm worried it could be cancer but I was just wondering what you think?

Not likely cancer.

Likely a lipoma, fatty tumor which is harmless

Or a lymph node.

just have your doctor examine it.
