What do cancerous "lumps" feel like?

I've seen many posts on this board about the presenting symptom of tonsillar cancer being a "lump" in the neck.  Is the lump simply a lymph node?  What does it feel like? Is it moveable?  Fixed?

My hubs lump was huge; I'm pretty sure it did move. Imagine a golf ball under the skin where the large neck vein is.
