What causes a lump on the neck?

Hi. I'm an 18 year old female and have found a lump on my neck, below my left ear. I also have a small bump behind my right ear and feel general fatigue. I also spotted small white dots inside my mouth on the left side tonsil, where the outer lump is. I also have random bodily pain that comes and goes.

Hi,
It seems that you might be having follicular tonsillitis producing white patch on tonsil leading to enlarged in surrounding area like neck, ears.
you might feel fatigue and generalized body ache due to this infection.
go for one antibiotic medicine course like Azithromicin or Amoxicilin for 5 days.
Do salt water or antiseptic gargles.
Avoid cold drinks and junk food.
Ok and take care.
