My 2 1/2 year old recently had a lump on his neck, and I took him to the doctor. It was a swollen lymph node, and the doctor said once they get big, it can take weeks or even months to to down. My son's swollen node was on a muscle so that was the reason it was sticking out so far. Hope that's all it is.

Anna8779 is correct, but make sure you keep your appointment with the doctor.
