In brief: Doubt cancer

Most guys your age have a few palpable nodes in the neck and groin.
Cancer (in this case a lymphoma) would be obvious and it's not worth sampling nodes willy-nilly. A tight feeling in the throat is very unlikely to be serious in the absence of obvious anatomic pathology -- "a lump in the throat" often simply reflects the good stress of living the full life of a young adult.
