What causes a lump in neck just below the ear?

I noticed a small lump on my neck just below the left ear. I went to Internal Medicine doctor before and she told me that I will observe the lump if it increase in size without giving me a medication because I don't have infection at that time. Is it alarming? I am still worried because the lump is still there. What should I do?

hi
if there is no active acute infection
u can wait for it to subside .
if not reduced u need to undergo ultrasound examination of the swelling and detailed examination of ear nose and pharynx and larynx with endoscope
