An enlarged lymph node can present with a lump in that area. This can be caused by a variety of infections, such as ear infections or upper respiratory infections.
I agree with the antibiotic choice. If the lump continues despite appropriate antibiotic therapy, an ENT referral should be considered to take a closer look at the lump. A biopsy would give a more definitive answer.
Followup with your personal physician is essential.

I WENT TO SEE AN ENT AND HE SAID THE LUMP WAS NOTHING TO WORRY ABOUT AND THAT I HAD TMJ, I STILL JUST DONT KNOW--SHOULD I JUST NOT WORRY ABOUT IT OR SHOULD I SEEK A SECOND OPINION, THE LUMP IS NOT VISIBLE BUT IT IS MOVABLE. IM JUST AFRAID OF CANCER OR TUMORS
