Is my lipoma from whiplash?
I was the driver in a car that was rear-ended on May 30. On June 8, I noticed a lump on my right upper back, ER initially diagnosed as muscle knot. MRI and doctor later diagnosed lipoma. On June 17, I developed swelling in my neck (kind of the nape of my neck, between the scapula and clavicle) that seems more noticeable when I pull my shoulders back, about size of small golf ball. The dorsal subcutaneous lipoma is 6.1 cm x 6.8 x 3.6. Swelling on neck did not show on MRI. ER visit on June 17 said maybe lymph node, nurse practitioner on June 20 didn’t know what it was, didn’t think lymph node said ask surgeon to check. I am scheduled to see surgeon about next step on July 9. Would like to hear any thoughts/opinions. Thank you.
