The most common cause for this symptom, lump sensation in throat, is mild infection, usually due to viral sore throat.
Antibiotics don't work for viral infections.

Tell me exactly where you find swollen lymph nodes (are just groin lymph nodes swollen)?
What else you are experiencing?
Do you feel extremely fatigue?
For how long you have swollen groin lymph nodes?
