I have a lump on the front of my neck in the centre, just below my jaw. It is hard and doesn't move. It's not painful, but in the week since I've noticed it, it has got slightly bigger, and theres another, smaller lump developing just next to it. Its currently about 1cm in diameter. I have had a cold lately, but otherwise in perfect health. I just wanted to check if this was normal or if it sounds like something potentially cancerous that I should get checked out.
