I have a hard strange lump on side of my neck , right below my ear. i went to the doctors and got antibiotics , i got a little bit better then i ran out and its gotten worse than it was before. Sometimes ill feel a pulsating pain from just sitting and not touching and it still does hurt when i touch it. Also, its very visible so see easily. Do you know what this is?

A pulsating swelling is not to be taken lightly although it may just be a simple infected lymph node gland in which case the swelling should subside within three weeks. However if the swelling persists or increases in size then it is advisable to go for a thorough evaluation which includes CT/ pan endoscopy and if needed FNAC/ biopsy of the lump in a good institution.
