Please schedule a a visit with your primary care provider. You are likely dealing with a throat infection (pharyngitis) which could be bacterial or viral. There are tests that can be done in order to rule out a bacterial cause (strep) in which case you will need antibiotics. Also you may have allergies with resultant post nasal drip that is causing your symptoms, and/or an ear infection. In the meantime take Ibuprofen for pain, warm salt gargles, and a daily anti-histamine.
I hope you find answers and relief soon. ...Read more

Are: Are we sure this is a lymph node? An isolated lymph node in the suboccipital area would be unusual unless there were inflammatory/infectious processes of the posterior scalp skin or very rarely spread of skin cancers. Did it appear at the time of your other symptoms or has it possibly been present for some time and you now just noticed it. Sebaceous cysts (blocked oil glands) or small lipomas (fatty tumors-benign) can be mistaken for a lymph node. If it persists beyond 3-4 weeks it would be reasonable to have it looked at. If it remains swollen and tender (not usually a characteristic of a malignant lymph node) a course of appropriate antiobiotics and short term oral steroids wouldn't be inappropriate. ...Read more
