Why is there a visible lump at back of my throat under my chin where my chin meets my neck?

Your enquiry: I have a lump at the back of my throat, and have done so for at least 4 months now. I've been to doctors and have been put on all different kinds of antibiotics for all different reasons but the lump still stays. It's about the size of a golf ball, and as hard as one situated on the underside of my chin at the back where it curves to the neck. It's a visible lump and it hurts for me to bend my head back. The lump has seemed to have gotten bigger recently and has started to make the skin around and over the lump rather tender to touch. I have no other symptoms apart from the visible lump under my skin and I am starting to get very worried about it, but my local GP tells me something different every time I go get it seen to, they also say that they will get me tested if it continues, but then I go back and they say the same thing again. If you could shed any light onto what this may be, how I can solve it or what I should do, could you please let me know as soon as possible, thank you
