The tender node in this location needs to be examined and possibly taken out. If this is truly a tender swollen lymph node, then it could be very serious. It might not be a lymph node, but an infection/abscess which also needs to treated. This does not sound like pulled muscle. The pain extension is most likely related to an inflammatory process. It's not urgent but you should check with your family doctor Monday, otherwise go to urgent care
