Exam needed: I recommend that you have a physician examine this mass. Even if it appears to be an enlarged lymph node it should be reexamined in a week or two to assure that it has receded in size and if it hasn't, further evaluation by biopsy may be advised in order to rule out malignancy. Reexamination is also important to ensure that other masses have not appeared.
