This is Dr. Bonilla.
I understand your concerns. The lump you described is likely to be a inflamed lymph node. It is common to see lymph nodes after a viral of bacterial infection. They usually disappear after a couple of weeks. If the lymph node increases in size or does not improve after 2-3 weeks you should see your PCP for further assessment.
Please rate my answer. Let me know if you have any other questions.
This can be a sebaceous cyst.
These can come and go and it should be diagnosed now.
A node that hurts and causes inflammation, without an obvious source of infection should be examined.
It might be gone in 2 to 3 weeks.
Have it examined now, not later.
