In brief: Do not ignore

Most likely infection and not cancer.
However, could be lymphoma. Also, there are higher rates of throat/tonsil cancer with neck lymph nodes in younger people (even nonsmokers) due to HPV infection. However, remember this is most likely an infection. It may need treatment with an antibiotic. If lumps persist, however, just do not forget that cancer is a potential cause.
