We have lymph nodes all over our bodies, including in the position you describe. I know because I had sore bumps in the back of my skull before. It is probably doing its normal job of protecting you from something...just like when one under your jaw or under your arm gets sore sometimes.
If it doesn't go away, it's always good to check in with the doctor -- us armchair advisers are just amateurs, after all! But I doubt it is anything to get too anxious about
-- stress will only make everything worse!
Hang in there,
