Lump on Neck



I woke up one morning and noticed a small enlarged lump on my neck right below my ear lobe. It is hard and does not move. I have been told this could be my lymph nodes, but what I need to know is what causes this and what it can be?


This question cannot be answered over the internet, without physically examining the lump itself. I think you need to have this lump examined by a doctor.
