recurring extremely painful to palpation right front side of neck

this has been recurring for a year now...first it was every few months, then once a month, now it just came back two weeks later...does not hurt if I swallow..only if i palpate or press lightly, it's very painful...i feel like a lymph node possibly or a gland possibly...i'm not sure..i could be wrong..i'm so scared..i'm a smoker for many years...the spot is exactly about an inch going down from jaw bone and about a quarter of an inch going diagonally up from your adam's apple...i'm going tomorrow for a sonogram to start....i know i'll need a ct, but you know how these ins. companies are...i've had it looked at 3 times by an ent with a scope and they don't see anything...i'm not sick, no fever....do you think this is head, neck or throat cancer???? i do have an underactive thyroid, but i am regulated and been on synthroid for over 3 years now..thanks...
