What exactly is your query now ?
Since I have not heard back from you so I am giving you a general answer and you can come back for any further details
If the swelling is in the same area as the thyroid gland so it could be a small goiter or it could be a cyst
Sometime painful swelling can occur with viral thyroiditis
If it is on the side of the neck then it can be an inflamed lymph node
You should take Ibuprofen to relieve the pain and swelling and if you don,t feel any improvement in few days then you will need to visit the doctor for examination
