I have a small bump in between my cheekbone and ear on one side of my face, and also have a minor sore throat/ cough. Is this a swollen lymph node?

In brief: Probably

It is very common for lymph nodes to swell during an upper respiratory illness.
If it does not resolve in size over a few weeks go to a doctor.

In brief: Probably

Probably. If that is the case, the bump should disappera after the others symptoms improve.
If not, see your doc to look at the bump.
