What type of doctor should I see?

I noticed I have two lumps (one tender when touched, one painless) at the back of my neck on the left side and one closer to my ear. I’ve also had my left eye twitch annoyingly for a while (though I’ve seen an ophthalmologist in the past for this and he said it’s normal). Not sure if the two are related but I’d like to make an appointment with a specialist. Would a neurologist probably be my best bet? Otherwise maybe ENT?

An ENT would be who you would see for that if you wanted to go the specialist route. Sounds like swollen lymph nodes. I have those permanently in my neck from having psoriasis

Do you have the psoriasis on your scalp by any chance? I ended up going to my primary doctor, he ran blood work which came back normal. He thinks it has to do with my scalp and to see a dermatologist if the swollen lymph nodes don’t go away in a few weeks.

I do!! It's more on the back of my head near my neckline. And it was always just on the left side. And that lymph node was always swollen. Now the psorasis has moved to the right side also a bit, and I notice that node is also enlarged. The ENT and Neuro both said it's from the psorasis. I was seriously convinced I had lymphoma. But, it's been probably 5 years and they are still the same.
