Sorry for late reply and inconvenience.

Thanks for all these additional information.
I understand your concern.

Well as you describe,possible causes may include Swollen lymph node, lipoma, which is a fatty growth, or a cyst.

As you don't have any symptoms so it doesn't seem serious.

However if you feel it's growing over the time then ultrasound should be done to rule out underlying possible cause.

Let me know if you have any further query so we can discuss it thoroughly in every aspect.
