Lump on neck, foul smell on squeezing, breath smells of the same odour. Cancer symptoms?

I have a lump on my neck , my doctor says its a cancer tumor , she said not to worry about it. I wonder if she is right, if I squeeze the lump a really bad odor comes, sometimes I notice that my breathe smells like the odor when this happens the lump is extremly small. I was wondering if it could be draining down my throat and if it could be something other than cancer?

General Surgeon 's  Response
There are many types of lumps in the neck.
Please get a FNAC(Fine needle aspiration cytology) of the swelling.It confirms whether the swelling is cancer or not.
Till that report,we cannot say that the swelling is cancer.
If you come back with the FNAC report, i will clarify further
Wish you good health
