Pea sized lump at base of skull, painful, tingling. Taking ibuprofen. What could be this?

My daughter has a pea sized lump at the base of her skull. It feels similar to a lymph node...but it farther back on her neck...it moves around and is causing her pain. She says it feels larger sometimes and when she takes ibuprofen it feels smaller. She complained of a "tingling" feeling for days before the lump appeared. What could this be?

Hi,
Thank you for posting your query.
The exact diagnosis can be made only after a clinical examination of the swelling. However, the possibilities in that area include a lymph node swelling, sebaceous cyst and a lipoma.

Please get back if you require any additional information.
