lynx, as distributed, doesn't do SSL, and isn't likely to, at
least in the near future.  Getting an SSL-enabled lynx involves
patching the lynx source, having the ssl libs available, and
recompiling lynx.  With luck, that won't be the problem here.

Probably the most useful detail would be the URL for the site
causing the problem, if you're willing to provide it, and it
doesn't cost anything to access.  Even if it isn't free, someone
else on the list may well have some pertinent experience with it.

Otherwise, I think it'll take some trace output to find out
what's actually transpiring twixt server and lynx.
