Thanks for writing to us.
Commonest cause of such lump in this region is enlarged lymph nodes. Other causes are thyroid nodule
, glomus tumor
, congenital cyst, lipoma
or ectopic thyroid tissue etc.
Since there are many causes, generally one needs a clinical evaluation and sonography
to know underlying cause of lump.
I would suggest getting this evaluated by a physician for an accurate diagnosis and appropriate management. You may get the X-ray of the area affected and FNAC (fine needle aspiration cytology) of lump under his/her guidance.
Wishing you good health...
