Lump Under Skin About An Inch Above My Addams Apple

Hello, I have this lump about a good inch or so above my adams apple towards my mouth. I have another one on my neck. I think I am just paranoid this is my situation. I am a student teacher and I have to shave my face all the time. This area where I have these lumps are all where I shave first of all. This area above my adams apple is a pain in the butt for me to shave (I think it is for many guys). I have to shave over and over in the same spot to get the hair out. Now I have this pea lump in my throat, on the side of my neck and a small one above the biggest one which is an inch above my adams apple. Do any guys have this problem with shaving. I have also been stress out very much doing more work then ever in my life (I love teaching its not a complaint but busy) and I have had cysts before. But can they keep coming back? Why does this happen?

Please help me I am paranoid.

Thank you for asking at Ehealth forum!

I read your question and I understand your concern.
These don't look clinically significant.
I would suggest you to monitor its size and consistency
