Need exam: This is an unusual presentation. Of course, you can't actually see a lymph node beneath the skin, so technically you are describing the skin overlying a lymph node turning black and blue. Trauma which wasn't noticed could account for this but with a lump and both sides...unlikely. This needs evaluation by your doctor. A careful physical examination will lead to the next needed diagnostic steps.
