lumps in neck
Dear doc,
2 pea size lumps have appeared in my right side of my neck. They are sensitive when touched. I have been struggling a lot with sinusitis and also have not been sleeping well and some mornings my neck hurts(maybe slept in wrong position). could this be the cause??

Thx

You should consult your doctor for an examination, as these tiny lumps are an indication of a lymph adenitis. They are possibly due to an upper respiratory tract infection and you may need a course of antibiotics.
