Get checked: If it's been there for two years and is growing It needs to be examined. Could be anything from an infected cyst to some type of skin cancer. Please have your doctor check it.

Infection: It could either be your body reacting to a cut or scratch in your mouth or the face; or it could be a system wide infection. If its just under your chin it is more likely a local reaction to an obvious injury.

Acne vs. lipoma?: Not sure what your condition is, or what's the diagnosis. U r rather on the old side to be getting acne ("pimples") although it has happened b4 in this age range. If u've had acne b4 (as a teenager, say) then recurrence is possible. But acne normally is "white", not yellow, under the scabs. Yellow implies lipoma- b9, fatty tumors. See a doc, get a diagnosis, then c about Rx. Damage is hard to say.
