I have a swollen preauricular lymph node. It's hard, doesn't move, and hurts. How long should I let it go before I see a doctor? Primary care or ENT?

In brief: That location

really doesn't have lymph nodes, they are found postauricular or along jaw line, so i would be concerned about cyst or tumor. I would head to primary care if it doesn't clear in 2 -3 weeks.
