Painless lump under right jawline

A couple days ago, I was just touching the bottom right jawline near my ear. I felt a small lump. It can be felt when I tilt my head upwards and left. I am wondering if this is a reactive lymph node. It is painless and firm. And I have no idea when it developed. I am currently having canker sores (healing) in my mouth and back of my throat. I also excessive saliva, but I started having this after I found out there is a lump under my right jawline (making me stressful). Any idea what this is? Thanks!

Sure sounds like a lymph node. I personally have met  7 of mine lol.

They made themselves known to me after injuries, infections, or viral illnesses, so far. They ranged in size and hardness from pea to marble to grape to golf ball to devil's horns.

From Google:  

The body has between 501 and 700 lymph nodes (the number of nodes varies from individual to individual.)
