You should be examined by a doctor first.That indicates that it may be a enlarged lymph node or it may be a swelling of some kinds like a cyst, etc .Only and examination can rule out the difference.If its a superficial swelling of some kind,it may be possible to remove it.If its a lymph node,it may indicate infections and treatment will be antibiotics.
