Food getting caught in throat

Hi, I am also new to this site. I am 22 years old, and for the past seven months, when I eat, pieces of food get stuck in the throat. I can actually "hawk" them up or just keep swallowing. Anyway, it only seems to get bad when I really notice it. For a couple months I just kind of blew it off and didn't think much about it. One month ago I decided to look it up online, and all kinds of results pointed to a possibility of cancer!! There is no pain involved... And for two months I have had a swollen lymph node I am assuming in front of my right ear. It creates pressure on my jaw when I press it. I also found swollen glands behind my jaw bone on my left side... Has anyone ever experienced

1.) food getting stuck in throat without cancer


2.) Swollen lymph nodes without cancer or sickness??

I'm literally driving myself crazy here!!
