Bumps: The presence of lymph node enlargement as describes suggests that the head and neck is fighting an infection. The original hairline lump was likely to be the sourse of the infection. The persistence of a lump after this amount of time needs review by a doctor. Probably this can be addressed by your primary care/family medicine doctor.
