Hi Amanda

Lump on the single side with very short history may be suggestive of deep seated boil/carbuncle or it may be simple lipoma which is now increasing ,, Surgical review for better diagnose is must.

hello and welcome to healthcare forum.
Most common swelling at neck would be enlarged lymph node.
As you described your condition, it is having short duration of origin, less painfull, and growing in size, it is also suggestive of enlarged lymph node. It is mostly reactive enlargement.
You will require a course of antibiotic for it.
Best of luck.

Hi Amanda
Welcome to HealthcareMagic.
This could be a lymph node swelling.Neck Lymph node swelling can occur due to simple throat infection or TB or infection of Lymph node itself or any tumor.
I advise you to visit your Physician and get it evaluated for any of the causes.It is important to evaluate the causes for an enlarging lymph node.

Take care.
