Hi Sheila,
These 2 symptoms could be related only if the lump was large enough to encroach on your cervical spinal cord. It can then lead to the symptoms that your have described. If the lump is small, it cannot lead to these symptoms. In that case, it could be due to low blood pressure. I would suggest you take plenty of fluids ( like lemon water, Gatorade or oral rehydration solution) and take small, regular meals through the day.
Hope this helps

Thanks for posting your query

Considering the area of involvement there are all chances that this is a lymphnode

What are the presenting complains apart from the swelling?
What are the reports indicating to ?

Anyway if there is proximity with carotid sinus the symptoms can be attributed to the swelling

Hope this helps
