Hello and welcome
The swelling near neck are mostly enlarged lymph nodes. But it can also be cyst or muscle or tissue collection. As use already done FNAC, I would like to know the report of the examination before giving any comments.
You can consult your General Physician first and if he/she advised you for removal of the swelling consult your Surgeon.
Hope this will help you.
