Unhappy painful lump in neck..?

I have had this lump in the right side of my neck that goes away for a few days here and there, but I can usually feel it. It sits about an inch under my ear lobe, right beside my jaw.

I have never had any pain associated with it, but the past couple of days it has become very painful to the touch.

I've had it for such a long time but the fact that it is now sore is concerning me... Is the lump itself a normal thing, and maybe it got aggravated somehow? I don't think this is the case, but I guess it's possible.

I don't want to run to the doctor if it's nothing!

How long is "such a long time?" A year? A week? A month? That would help in telling what it is. Normally I'd say you're dealing with a swollen lymph node; that really does sound like what it is.

A trip to the doctor wouldn't be out of the question.

I don't remember exactly when I first noticed it but at least 3 or 4 years.
