Lymph nodes: That area of the body is rich in lymph nodes. So it is not unusual to find them there. However, if the node is painful or enlarging it should be evaluated. Lymph nodes serve as filters for white blood cells. I would keep track of it. If it gets bigger or painful(besides you checking it) it should be looked into.

Yes: Either a benign fatty tumor or an inflamed lymph node- requires exam and evaluation.
