In brief: Knot on neck

As you state that there is no pain, likely you have a cyst, or lipoma.
These do not have to be removed unless they become a worry to you or get large enough that you wish them to be removed.

In brief: Possible Lipoma

Without actually examining you i can't be sure, but it sounds like you have a lipoma, a benign collection of fat cells.
Get it checked by your dr, and it can be removed if it is causing problems or getting larger.
