Occipital Lymph Node swelling

Hi everyone I have a question. About a week ago I notice a slight ache/pain in the back of my neck where my lymph node would be. I couldnt find anything it just hurt like a bruise. Ive been messing with it like crazy and last night I noticed I could feel something that felt like a swollen node. I had to really push hard to feel the node. Id say its the size of a peanut m&m but i cant really get a definate shape or size it feels like its below the muscle. Its alot more sore now. I just want to get some peoples thoughts. Im going to wait a few days and see what happens if it does not improve ill make an appt to see a dr.


Another question is hwo hard or easy is it to fell an occipital lymph node? I felt a node in my neck before when I was sick and it was pretty easy to feel.
