Please get an FNAC(Fine needle aspiration cytology) of the swelling.It confirms whether it is malignant tumour or lymphoma or benign.
If FNAC is inconclusive,please go for Excision of the swelling and send for histopathological examination.
Till then,please take antibiotic and anti inflammatory drug.
