2 year old kid has marble size lump in the left side of his neck.

My 2 year old son has marble size lump in the left side of his neck about a marble size. Finished anitbiotic today and it hasn t changed at all. I touch it and he never says it hurts. Do you think i could be cancer??? He usually is up really early and lately hasn t wanted to get up, but after he is up he is pretty good. He seems fine other wise.
