My mom had Hodgekins in the 1970s when it was a death sentence.  She survived due to divine intervention and some persistant doctors.

My mom's lumps were always unmoveable and and she had what she called "cancer fatigue"  It is not the kind of fatigue you get over or sleep off.  I had mono about 20 years ago and I told her how i felt.  she said that was what this felt like.

You don't lose weight until cancer has progressed.  You just don't lose it when you have a pea sized lump, which isn't large.  I have a pea sized lump too and nobody is too worried about it

I had the same thing last year; I was very convinced I had lymphoma. I went to ENT and he did a CT scan of my neck and mri of my brain came back normal, 4 month later I started having red throat. I went back to ENT and we discovered I have tonsil stones and they get infected. That can cause your nodes to swell a bit... particularly the ones under your jaw.
