In brief: Lymph node and phelg
Assuming the lymph node is in the neck or head area with phlegm is sounds like you have some sort of upper respiratory tract infection.
If the phlegm isn't discolored - probably not bronchitis. I would monitor the situation - a high fever or worsening cough or badly discolored mucus may be a sign of a worsening infection.
