Hi Edina, it looks like infection induced to me. But hard node for one month worries me. I think you must undergo FNAC of the node, in which doctor puts a needle and get the fluid. This after microscopic examination can help to decide or rule out cancer. Please don't wait as its a simple test. Take care.
