Tenderness under jawline, swollen lymph node. Which specialist should I consult?

I have a little bit of tenderness under my jaw line on my left side. There appears to be a small lump, which I think is a swollen lymph node, (it seems to be oval shaped sort of and not very big) however, it seems to sort of flair up once in a while. Any ideas what this could be, and or what type of doctor I should go see?
