Hi Lissevilla,

Welcome to HealthcareMagic Forum,
This can be an infected lymph node which appeared over the carotids and got enlarged and probably infection has subsided now and hence pain but the enlargement remains. You can just wait for few days and notice whether the swelling increases in the size or not, if so then please do contact your ENT specialist.
