Welcome to the forum.

you need to get a fine needle aspiration cytology of the lump done to know the oringin and the cause, then it can be treated accordingly depending on its nature. It is difficult to say whether it is something to worry about or not without seeing it but it would be best to rule out malignancy with a cytology study.

I hope this is helpful to you.

You can consult me again directly through my profile.
