Brief Answer:
Probably the symptoms are related to enlarged lymph nodes.

Detailed Answer:
Hello dear and welcome to ‘Ask A Doctor’ service. I have reviewed your query and here is my advice.

The most common lumps or swellings in the neck are enlarged lymph nodes.

These can be caused by bacterial or viral infections.

I recommend to do some examinations to exclude other possible causes.

I suggest:

A complete blood count

A CT scan of the neck

The treatment depends on the cause.

I suggest using anti inflammatory medication such as Ibuprofen 400 mg three tablets a day.

If we confirm through the blood test the presence of a bacterial infection antibiotics may be needed.

I recommend to follow up with your general physician for further evaluation.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.
