It sounds like a swollen lymph node to me. My son has had an enlarged one since he was about 6 or 9 months old (he's 5 now). We took him to a specialist who told us it was probably just from all the ear infections he had as a baby. We later found out that my husband's mom had the same thing when she was a kid, and so did her mom. They told us it was nothing to worry about. But taking him to the doc is a good idea anyway.

It is a swollen lymph node. He is more than likely fighting some kind of bug. Very common thing for kiddos.
