Probably lymph node: There are several lymph glands located within the structures of the neck & will vary in size from the size of a pea to much larger if stimulated.

Hello.: Hello. Cannot make a diagnosis through this venue. Although there can be swollen lymph nodes in that area; 1.5 inches in diameter would be much larger than expected. If it was a fatty tumor, would not expect it to have noticeable growth over ten days. If it is red, hot and tender, it could be an infected cyst. I agree with the doctor who examined you. If it becomes painful, red, hot, more swollen or there is swelling or heat in the surrounding area or you get an associated fever than you need to get it rechecked. ...Read more

Any other newly-found hard lump should be evaluated as soon as the doctor is available (within a few days to a week). At the bottom of the earlobe is the mastoid bone. If one side (either left or right) is much bigger than the other side, that is not normal and needs evaluation. ...Read more
