Need Help Hi I am 24 years old ,

Patient : Need Help. Hi I am 24 years old , I have had a swollen lymph node below my jaw for about 4-5 months now. It's not painful, it's tender and it has not grown. This week I've been suffering from a painful and dry sore throat and a fever. It lasted about a week. I recently had unprotected sex with my husband about 3 months ago before we ended up separating after he cheated on me. I am seriously hoping this is not any type of STD I could've got from him!!! if possible can you explain the factors/symptoms of an STD dealing with a lymph node and what can be the cause of my problem before I head back to the DOC in 2 weeks.
