Exclamation Lump in neck near ear and jaw.

I have a lump in my neck and i haven't really payed much attention to it until recently. I felt it start i'd say a month ago. It has gotten bigger,about the size of an eraser head. Last week I had some jaw pain, this week it's followed by numbness around the jaw area and close to the lump, but no more pain. I have an appointment on the 13 of Feb. with my primary care physician. I am 18yrs old . I'm so worried that this could be lymphoma or salivary gland caner. I am also on an anti biotic called bactrim for the treatment of acne ive been on it for about 2 weeks. Could this be cancer?
