One small, hard lymph node back of neck, sinus infection and sore throat, negative strep. just started augmentin. Super scared it's cancer? Read online hard, rubbery lymph nodes are cancer. It's a bit tender to touch.

In brief: Node

With your other symptoms most likely a reactive node and will resolve with antibiotic.
If tender more likely from infection too. If persists after antibiotics then follow up with MD.

In brief: Unlikely

to be cancer, confer with your doctor, have a second opinion if you wish, better than online reading which would confuse you more, best wishes
