Brief Answer:
You should be investigated

Detailed Answer:
Hi
For any swelling,basic investigation I do is FNAC(Fine needle aspiration cytology).It will give a clue.Management depends on the diagnosis.
If FNAC is inconclusive,the swelling has to be removed completely and send for histopathological examination (Biopsy).
Please consult your doctor and proceed further.
It could be a simple lymph node enlargement due to Infection.
Nothing to worry.
Hope I answered your query.If you have any questions,I will clarify further.
Wish you good health
