Brief Answer:
Most probably swollen lymph node due to developing illness/infection

Detailed Answer:
Hello and welcome.

Thank you for writing to us.

I have gone through your query with diligence and would like you to know that I am here to help. Based on your presentation, I am quite sure this is a swollen lymph node in the neck region.

Swollen lymph nodes in the neck region are due to:

+Infection
+Other illness
+Tumors (rare): And unlikely in your case due to the sudden development of swelling in the lymph nodes

I would not worry too much about the presentation you are experiencing, and would schedule a doctors consult as you could be falling ill to some infection. I hope you find my response helpful. Please feel free to write back to me for any further clarifications, I would be more than happy to help.

Best wishes.
