And your question is . . . ?  Sounds like you have an infection.  That painful swollen lump is most likely a lymph node indicating that the infection is close by.  It could also be an abscess or pus pocket that needs to be drained.  Either way, you should go see your family doc.  But you knew that, right?  Good luck!
