A:   Hello,
Thanks for the query.
On reviewing your picture attached with the query, it looks like an acute inflammation of the thyroid gland or even a lymphadenitis.
The condition needs to be ruled out by an examination. Consult an ENT doctor for an examination and specific anti-inflammatory medicines. Antibiotics may be needed.
Hope this helped.
Regards
