Neck mass: The only definitive diagnosis of any mass is to have it biopsied. There are lymph chains in your neck area, so depending on where it is, it may be simply a benign lymphadenopathy, but again, as stated, the only definitive diagnosis is made by biopsy. An ENT Doctor would be able to perform a therapeutic and diagnostic excisional biopsy of the area if warranted after an examination. Best wishes.See 1 more doctor answer

If the lymph node does not improve in a month, see an ent.See 1 more doctor answer

If you have fever, redness over the lump, discharge from the lump, or difficulty opening your jaw you should see your doctor asap.

A cyst or node: Epidermal inclusion (sebaceous) cysts and lipomas often occur here. Could also be a lymph node, but if not enlarging is not of concern.
