hi... there is a sort of chemical and blood pressure receptor in your jugular vein.. so any lump near that part can compromise with this function and will produce associated symptoms like incresed or decreased heart beat and BP.. so better to consult a surgeon and find out waht sprt of lump is it and remove it if possible after thorough investigations..
