You are correct that cancerous lumps rarely cause any pain. What you describe could be an enlarged lymph node. The cause could be one of several things ... one being an infection. This may also be an infected hair follicle. I would suggest that you see your Physician and have this ck.d out as some treatment may well be helpful.   Regards ....
