Hi Mark, welcome to the forums.

I've merged the two threads you started on the same subject.

As Pat says, you can do a search for threads already dealing with this subject - or you could ask more specific questions. I'm unsure what you're asking for.

Hey Mark,

I've got the hump and the neck. What do you want to know?

It doesn't hurt, unless someone rubs it too hard.

Can you get rid of it? Some people have had some success with liposuction/surgical removal. Often it returns. By the way, mine developed quickly, within a few months.

Some have had it go away on their own once they switch meds.

Mine haven't as yet.

I was on meds more than a decade before mine showed up. Some people have them show up much sooner.

It is very individual.

Hope this helps. If you have any further questions, just ask away.
