Its not too painful just a bit uncomfortable when I press it

Thanks for the details

It seems either an inflamed cyst or an inflamed lymph node

You should use Ibuprofen to control the inflammation

If that does not help in a couple of days then you will need a course of antibiotic

Hopefully that will settle the problem completely

There is nothing to worry at all

Please do let me know if you have any other question
