Is this swollen or serious lump ?

Yesterday I ate a cought drop at work, and when I had swallowed some of the broken pieces i felt a sharp part of the candy in the back of my throat. I tried to cough it out and drink some fluids to make it go down and it worked. But now I have a lump on my right side of my neck just below my ear and its the right side of where the candy was stuck at. Is it serious??

do you have pain?do you have any other symptom? there could be dozen other questions that your doc might like to ask you.coz that is what the docs did to me when i had a swollen throat,but then at the end it was all relevant coz doc told he had to rule out any other condition before comeing over a diagnosis. Get your self evaluated by a proffesional to be on the safe side.
