Hi.  Can you give more details about yourself and that lump? How old are you? When did that lump first appear? How large is it? Do you have other symptoms such as fever? If you're really bothered by your condition, it might be best for you to consult with a doctor to have it properly evaluated and treated.  From your descriptions it seems to me that you're having an infection in that area. It doesn't seem to be cancer, which usually presents in that area as a painless mass.  Just see a doctor soon so you can get proper treatment.
