    Hi, try not to worry. It's probably just a swollen lymph node. I too have had lumps in my neck that went away after a couple of days. I was worried too much and ended up spending all of my time just thinking about it and wasnt able to enjoy my life at the moment. If it gets debilitating for you, it's still best to go to the doctors for reassurance.

    is it one lump or more like little nodules? 

    Have you had a cold, ear or throat infection recently? It could easily be a swollen gland, painful to touch if you push it. 

    hope your feeling better x
