Recently I discovered a painful lump on my neck right under my javw line on the right side. Any contact causes alot of pain it's gotten bigger the past few days I say it a little smaller than a golf ball. Any ideas on what this could be? I'm freaking out a little.

If you have an infection it could be a swollen lymph node.
I get these a lot before a flare.
See your doctor ASAP.

Thank you. And I will. I get many small ones but this one is visible and painful that's what threw me off! I'm a female 20 years old had a positive ana they said it was too low to be causing any damage but all the symptoms are there. I finally got an internal medicine doctor that will help me get a diagnosis by booking me rheumatologist and urologist appointments. Hopefully it will be my Christmas present this year to finally get a diagnosis. I been testing since 2008 and December of last year they found my positive ANA but my IM doc tells me he sees this all the time when doctors don't pay attention to the problem until its a real big issue. He's 100% sure it's lupus so crossing my fingers because I'm tired of pain meds and ER visits I want to get treated.

Hi,
 
That sounds like a swollen lymph node to me also. I always had issues with those especially under my arm. Now that I am on medication it has gotten somewhat better. I know how frustrating it is and obviously its never dun to hear you have a disease but after years of being sick it does come as a relief.

Thanks for the response =) it's fading away finally still a little painful but more annoying than unbearable. Definitely the beginning of a flare. My ankles, knees and hands are killing me. =(
