Carotid body Tumor

Has anyone ever heard of "Carotid body Tumor"? And if you have what exactly is it. How were you diagnosed. I would appreiciate any responses on this. I have a lump in my neck right where my carotid artery is and its getting bigger and harder. I have been told it could just be my carotid artery and I can appreciate that arguement. I'm willing to listen to that and still do proactive research without freaking myself out ;-)
