... It sounds like some sort of injury. I had a spindle cell sarcoma in my leg--it did NOT ever hurt, grew rapidly and noticeably (noticed big changes in the lump over several months) and my doctor excised it to test it.

Usually it's soft, which is in contradiction to a cancerous tumour which are usually hard, and immobile. The ENT guy will do a head and neck exam, feeling all of your lymph nodes in the area...
