Brief Answer:
Lymph node most probably.

Detailed Answer:
Hi.
Thanks for your query.
Noted the history and understood the concerns.
The commonest causes I can think about for the lesion as you have described are as follows:
Enlarging lymph node.
Any lump from the muscle or tendon.
This can be confirmed by the following ways:
Clinical examination, preferably by a Surgeon.
Ultrasonography and FNAC if indicated.
This can give the most proper diagnosis and a plan for management.

I hope this answers your query. Please feel free to ask for further relevant queries if you feel that there is a gap of communication.
Please give feedback too.
Take care.
With Regards.
