Swollen posterior cervical lymph node

I have a swollen lymph node I can feel under the skin on the right side of my neck (in the posterior triangle, they call it).

It doesn't hurt but it is rubbery and movable. When I compare it to the node on the opposite side it is about 50% to 2x bigger.

I don't have any other symptoms, haven't been ill recently but I have an ever so slightly runny nose but this might be due to the cold weather.

Any ideas? It's been there for a week and isn't getting any smaller, it's scaring the hell out of me, I can't stop feeling it!

I am a 20 year old male.
