Probably nothing: You might be getting over an upper respiratory infection and have reactive lymphadenopathy. See your doctor.

Yes: The human papilloma virus is absolutely the leading cause of cervical cancer. Luckily there is now a vaccine which can prevent infection or progression of the most cancer inducing strains of the virus. Modern screening techniques such as pap smear and dna analysis can discover viral infection and pre-cancerous signs long before it progresses to cancer.

Roughly...: Around the time of ovulation, the amount of cervical mucus increases and it becomes more thin, clear, watery and elastic in response to estrogen produced in the body. After ovulation as the body shifts from estrogen to progesterone, the mucus becomes more thick, opaque and sticky. Tracking these changes can help you to know when you may ovulate, but is not a very reliable form of birth control!
