Nope: I would not expect the individual node to be likely for lymphoma in your child at this age. You are astute in suspecting it is related 2 the tm perforation. This is not the exact location the tm perf would cause a node, however, the illness that precipitated the perf in the first place could definitely lead to "reactive adenopathy" in that region. ( lymph nodes that react to fight infections)
