painful lymph node

I am 38 years old a non smoker. Last june i noticed a lymph node less than 1cm on my neck just under my chin (3in) I had a ct of my throat and it showed i had several lymph nodes but normal in sizebut the rest are normal.I am an asthmatic.i had a cbc and a peripheral smear and showed normal also.  I noticed something white at the inside of my cheek like a keloid  near where i had my impacted wisdon tooth was removed 3 years ago. I am not sure how long i have this but right now it does not change in size and shape. My ENT said its nothing but I am still worried it might be oral cancer. As for my lymph node just under my chin it starting to feel painful like a piercing pain but comes and goes. My Ent told me to stop worrying and to stop poking at my lymph node. No other symptom. But right now i have a bad cough. Should I be worried? If I m going to have my lymph node biopsied where will the excision be will it be on top of the lymph node? My ENT said that fine needle aspiration biopsy cant be done because it is so small.Help am still worried
