20 year old, reactive lymph node in neck

I'm a 20 year old female, overall good health aside from an underactive thyroid. I was on 75 mcg Levoxyl recently decreased to 25 mcg after a TSH reading of .03, heart palpitations, bounding pulse.  This was found at the same time as a "nodule" in my thyroid region.  Inferior and posterior to the left lobe of the thyroid was a .75 cm hypoechoic lesion.  They thought it was a thyroid nodule or parathyroid adenoma, and it turned out to be a reactive lymph node.  Submental lymph nodes were also found to be a few millimeters in size and appeared to be inflammatory in nature. I was told to have the node removed now or wait and watch for 2 months.  Should I be scared?  My mom had Grave's disease.  My thyroid was not inflamed on the ultrasound.  Could it be an autoimmune process, a result of the "off" TSH levels, or something worse (don't even want to say the "c" word).
