Swollen lymph node under jaw, sore, no fever. Could it be lymphoma?

Hi. I have a swollen lymph node right under my jaw . It has been there off and on for a while. It is sore when I push on it. I can move it around and when I look down it hurts. I haven t had any fever . But I am worried it might be lymphoma . I looked online and it said if the node is rubbery it could be lymphoma. What does that mean? Could it be lymphoma?

Hi, from your description, seems like an inflammatory lymph node. Still to be sure, you can go ahead with FNAC after a course of antibiotics. Consistency, the best person will be an ENT who can palpate it and tell you the consistency which gives you some idea about the differential diagnosis but not a method for making a diagnosis. Regards
