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.

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.
