In brief: Not always
A lump in the neck can be due to infection, fatty tumor, enlarged salivary gland, and sometimes due to cancer too.
A lump which continues to grow in a high-risk person (male, smoker, alcohol user, tobacco chewing, poor oral hygiene/dentition) without any signs of infection should raise concerns.
