We had the same issue and went to a doctor today to check it out. She without hesitation said that it was a swollen lymph node and nothing to worry about. She looked in the nose to find a sinus infection that had not yet shown symptoms. Gave us anti-biotics. Of course, this is not medical advice and your case may be different, but this is an encouraging possiblity that is nothing to worry about.
