You should not worry . This could be a lymph node.
Consult your doctor and you can take a broad spectrum antibiotic like amoxicillin with clavulinic acid to take care of the infection in the lymph node.
The infection cause these lymph node node to enlarge in size, which occur in the nearby surrounding area.
In doubt do reply
