It sounds like a swollen lymph node. You can get those even without being sick you may just be fighting something off. How small is the lump? I thought I had a swollen lymph node and my doctor (GP) thought so at first then he said go see a ear nose and throat doc (ENT) and I did and got a can scan because he wanted to rule out a clogged salivary gland and benign tumor. It turned out to be a hard muscle knot. So, maybe you should see an ENT or just start with the GP.
