i am a 22 yr old male. i recently discovered a small, hard lump, less than half the size of a pea. it is located at the base of my neck, 2-3 inches below the hairline. it was initially not painful, but i suppose i've poked around it too much, and now it feels somewhat painful.
am i looking at possible lymphoma here, or is this just an infected lymph node?
i tried to search for a similar situation through these forums but wasn't very successful.
i am rather worried, so i'd be very grateful for a response.

something i should've mentioned previously...
i did have the flu for a few days, but that was three weeks ago.
for over a week, however, i have had mild sore throat that hasn't quite gone away.
also, i did return from being abroad recently, but i've been in the US for a month now.
the node is painful to the touch, however, just this morning it was not. perhaps i have touched it too much.
i would much appreciate a response, thank you
