Get a ct: I am by no means an ear nose throat specialist but i would recommend a ct or MRI of your head neck to be more thorough.

2.25 cm ?: It depends on what the 2.25 cm mass is. If it's a lymph node, i would ask if it needs to be biopsied. Most physicians will biopsy or sample nodes or masses that concern patients. I would personally biopsy something if i wasn't sure what it was.
