Hi, Welcome to Health care magic forum.
As you describe it appears to be the dermoid cyst, or a lymph gland due to some infection in the surrounding area.
I advise you to consult a surgeon for diagnosis and treatment.
You may need to have an excision or incision for complete cure.
I usually prescribe to my patient with such symptoms ofloxacin, ornidazole, serratiopeptidase, and diclofenac .
Wishing for a quick and complete recovery. Thank you.
