Painless hard lump in neck along with sweating in night along with high white blood cell count and a positive family history of lymphoma in your family strongly points toward lymphoma.
You must consult your doctor as early as possible and get proper investigations done for the diagnosis.Biopsy would be very important in diagnosing the cause for this lump as there could be other causes for this lump like tuberculosis.
