Slowly growing lump on the left side of my neck

Hi I'm 16, and I've noticed a lump on my neck that has been slowly growing. I've had this for about 6 months or so and today I noticed that when I raised my head the lump was visible through the skin. My parents kept on telling me that it was probably just a swollen gland but it's grown and now it's visible. I don't think thats normal. It's above my adam's apple and on the left side of my neck. It's also the size of a large marble. Please shed some light for me. I've been worried that it may be a lymphoma, I would really appreciate the help.

Thanks so much for your time!
