Terrible pain in neck and back, causing nauseas and lump behind ear. History of cancer x2. Suggestion?

Hi, I m a 33 year old female with a history of cancer x2. For the last 4 months I ve not been feeling well. Tired, run down, exhausted, etc. I should mention I have quite a bit of stress and have attributed most of this to stress, although my gut tells me something may be wrong physically. Most recently I ve had terrible neck and upper back pain (but seems to stem from the neck pain ) that gets very severe to the point of nausea and severe headaches. A few days ago I noticed a hard, immobile, lump (I m assuming a lymph node), behind my left ear to the right of my jaw bone. It is tender upon touch. I ve been trying to call my primary to schedule an appointment, but the offices are closed today. Thank you

You have not mentioned what cancers you suffered from , not also mentioned the treatment you received. Back pain may be due to spinal injury, muscle spasm, disease progressing to invade the neural structures. Clinical examination is mandatory to have an idea for identifying the cause. Tender lymph node generally is infective, proper antibiotic course is necessary. You should consult a physician.
