Question Lymphoma?

Well, my question here is if I have lymphoma?

I'm a seventeen year old girl with a swelling right under my jaw, in the right side, for the past two months. It feels like a hard, consistent -but no so hard because I can press it- ball. Besides that swelling, Iíve been tired, without energy, with lots of chills, and I have chest pain Ė when I eat, I get full quickly, followed by indigestion, and when I drink alcohol, itís very, very painful. Also, I have a cough, and sometimes I feel like I canít get enough air when I breathe.

I know, I should go to the doctor but my mom doesnít want to believe me because at first, she brought me with the gastroenterologist because she thought it was gastritis, and the doctor did me an endoscopy, which told I have nothing. Since then, she says I need to stop feigning it but I swear Iím not feigning Anyway, I don't know with which doctor should I go: I can't go with the oncologist (mom's going to say I'm crazy) so... An endocrinologist? Or what?
