Sort of painless inflamed throat?


First post. Stumbled upon this community while searching about symptoms I've been having. As usual, I've come out more paranoid than I already was (my boyfriend will not be happy to hear).

Anyhow, it all began with a small bump beneath my tongue many months ago. I should mention I remember one being there before, then I thought it was gone, and it seems a new one has come back and has completely turned me in to a wreck as I'm sure it's oral cancer. My wonderful head.
Within the last few days I sort of noticed a slight sore throat, but keep trying to talk myself in to believing that it's nothing and I am making it up all on my own.
Finally, today, I am noticing that my throat is indeed a little swollen as the passage way looks smaller and i can feel my tonsils (that are large to begin with) resting on the back of my tongue.

Honestly, I'm a little embarrassed to go see my doctor because it seems I am always there, but more than anything, I'm just worried.
Has anyone else experienced anything similar to this? What was the outcome?
I am a nervous wreck at this point.
