What does it feel like when you touch it?

Did he hit his neck somehow?



I would take him in, personally. That's concerning.

I this happen to me when I was about 20. For me it was a swollen gland. At first it was a lump then it began to hurt and hurt real bad. It ended up being an infected gland and I needed antibiotics. It appeared at first over the course of a few hours. So getting it checked would be a good idea so it doesn't escalate. An urgent care would work, or make an appt first thing for Monday.

Did he swallow anything? Tell your ride to hurry up... I'd be at the ER so fast.

It kinda looks like a cyst. But cysts normally aren't hard.
