Hi there,

You should have it ultrasounded if it remains there for another 10 days.

It could be:

thyroid cyst, nodule, inflammation, etc

lymph node

internal jugular thrombosis


thyroglossal duct cyst


infection such as ingrown hair

It could also be a cyst of any type such as a cystic hygroma, dermoid cyst, sebaceous etc.

This is to name a few common causes.

There are also several rarer causes.

Let me know if you have additional questions.
