Respected customer, thanks a lot for your input, and thanks again for visiting! A great place where you can find guidance and/or solution from real experts. I am sorry to hear about your problem. I am going to address your primary concern but later you can ask anything you want. Even I would get tense in this situation. Cancerous nodes are never painful. Pain indicates inflammation and not cancer. You should start with over-the-counter available tablet Advil 400 mg thrice daily for the pain and see your doctor on Monday as you may need antibiotics as this is likely to be infectious. So be concerned but not stressed. I reassure you in the same way as I would have assured some of my family members that there is nothing serious behind this so please don't stress yourself.
