Can a canker sore cause painful and swollen lymph nodes?

I have had a canker sore in my mouth for about 2 days on the inside of my right cheek, and it's very *(I MEAN VERY)* painful!!

And now, starting this evening, my lymph node under my front of my chin/jaw area is swollen (about the size of a pea) and is very sore, not just sore to the touch, but the lymph node is actually aching and has a dull pain radiatiing around it, which is causing my whole entire right side of my head and face to hurt, and pains and throbbing into my jaw, neck and even my right shoulder hurts. Strange??

What could this be? Should I have it checked? or should I just assume that it's swollen and hurting due to the severe pain that I am in from the painful canker sore in my cheek?

Any help is greatly appreciated.
Thanks
Mia

Yes, swollen lymph nodes are common with severe canker sores.

Yes, when I get large canker sores, I usually get swollen lymph nodes that are painful
