Brief Answer:
Can be a lymph node swelling.

Detailed Answer:
Hello,
Thanks for posting your query.
I have seen the attached image. The swelling that you have is likely to be due to a swollen lymph node or a sebaceous cyst. This can happen due to a throat infection also.
If the swelling tender, red and painful then an infection is likely. A direct examination and an FNAC will help in detecting the exact cause of swelling.
I hope this answers your query.
In case you have additional questions or doubts, you can forward them to me, and I shall be glad to help you out.
For future query, you can directly approach me through my profile URL http://bit.ly/Dr-Praveen-Tayal
