Lump on jaw

I have a lump next to my ear on the front side. It only hurts when I press on it, it doesn't move, I can't feel it on the inside of my mouth. It is right next to my ear. I have also been feeling achy in my back and neck. I thought maybe I'm fighting an infection that I am unaware of. I have no sinus symptoms or anything. Could this be cancer?

It could be a cyst or swollen glands. The best thing to do would be
to have a doctor check it out. In the meantime make sure not to press on it as that will irritate it.
