Large lump

On the left side of my neck (from the jaw bone to the center, between collar & jaw bones) I have a lump 2" x 3". Very hard , oval in shape. You can see it is under the skin & is easy to see , It is "big". "Should  I try to "lance/drain it"???

Not on your own...i would go and see a dr about that...you have nerves and arteries in  your neck and if you lance one of them or puncture one of them it could cause very big problems for you.
