Cold, sore throat, pain behind ear, painful to touch, swollen lymph nodes. Should I be concerned?

Hi there,

I currently have a cold, and also had a sore throat but it has subsided now. I woke up today with a pain behind my ear and noticed a bump. It is "painful" to the touch. After some research on the internet, I realize that it could be a swollen lymph node.

Should I be concerned? What measures do I take next?
