Welcome to the forum.
Lump on the single side with very short history may be suggestive of deep seated boil/carbuncle or it may be simple lipoma which is now increasing .
possibly its enlarged lymph node swelling .
You will require a course of antibiotic for it.
you need further consultation form a doctor.
I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you.
