Nuchal Tendon Occification/Calcification
I have a horizontal hard mass at C5 & C6 It can be be pushed back and forth so it can hide in between C5 & C6 Back to front movement is over its width so at least 1″. Att other times you can feel in just by brushing hand over skin at C5/C6, It protrudes right to the surface of my skin or pushes straight back to align with my spine. It goes into alignment so good it does NOT show up on MRI CAT or Xray. It is slowly growing from half inch to 2″ in 3 years.
You can manually feel the front and both side. Many ppl have verified shape and size a friend measured it for me. It is a rectangle that is totally horizontal measuring 2″L x 1″D X 1/4″ H
It can not to be felt when laying on back for stomach, it goes back into alignment with cervical spine. It can only be felt when I am standing. I have been told the mass is calcification of my nuchal tendon, knowing that tendon is vertical it doesn’t make sense to me that that it would be that the shape I feel moves around and lays horizontally.
My next step is the Mayo, I want to tell my primary what i found out. So she can refer me.
I am new, first timer, so hope i did this right
