Scared Aunt for Niece

I have a 5 year old Niece that is not getting very good healthcare in my opinion. Recently she has had a bad head cold with coughing, but since her divorced parents don't have health insurance she does not get taken to the doctor much. For two weeks now she has had what feels to me like a lymph node or cyst that is sort of beside her temple on the left side. It feels moderately soft to the touch, which makes me think cyst but she says it is sore and she complains of her ear on the same side hurting. What is this and what should I do? AS her aunt I have gotten in trouble before for saying she should go to the doctor and if I take her without their permission I am afraid I will never see her again. I am scared this is something bad.
