Neck hurts while swallowing, below right ear, lump-like thing hurts on pressing. Is it normal? Cancer?

Its that part of my neck just below my right ear.. i m worried about it, because i feel it might be cancerous, because its just there on the right side and not the left.

Welcome to HCM,
Forget about cancer !
It seems that you are having Acute tonsillitis on your right side giving you problem.
Due to infection on tonsil, lymph node behind and back of your right ear is enlarged and becomes tender.
Go for antibiotic and anti-inflammatory medicines after consulting your doctor.
Do warm water or listerine gargles.
Avoid fried, junk food and cold drinks.
Ok and bye.
