i found a small hard painless lump 2 inches below my ear does that mean i have cancer

I found a small, hard, painless lump about 1 & 1/2 inches below my left ear about 5 weeks ago. I can't feel it unless I press down on it. Like I said, it doesn't hurt and it's not really getting any bigger. I think it may be in my muscle but I'm not sure. I noticed it when i was sick, but i've been over my symptoms for a week now and the lump is still there. I don't have insurance so I can't go to the doctor. Does this mean I have cancer?
