Lump on throat , above and to the right of Adam's Apple

I know I should get to the doctor, but unfortunately time is an issue for me right now. Just wondering if anyone may know what could be causing this. I found a lump on my throat just above and slightly to the right of my Adam's apple on Friday night. It's hard and round and is a little tender, that could be from all the poking and prodding I'm doing though. I have had swollen lymph nodes before but I know those are on the sides of the neck. I have looked up a million things but have gotten no where. Any one have any clue. I know the Thyroid is below the Adam's apple so I'm hoping that that is ruled out.
Any input would be appreciated.

Check thyroglossal duct cyst and see if that fits. Thyroglossal duct cysts will move with protrusion of the tongue.

Thyroid nodule also possible, but as you said, location doesn't sound right. Also consider lymph nodes, as you have, and various salivary gland etiologies.

Thanks Robert, I actually ran to a walk in clinic a little while ago and thats what the Doc said. He thinks it's just a swollen gland. Thanks though for the reply.
