See an ENT: There are many possibilities, including enlarged lymph nodes, cysts of the neck, or salivary gland issues. You may need a CT or MRI scan for further study depending on location and your symptoms. Some cases go on to require biopsy. See a board certified ENT doctor (otolaryngologist) to get it checked out.
