Dear friend, welcome and thanks for entrusting your query here at HCM!
I am Dr. Prasad Akole (Critical Care Expert- and am glad to address to your query here.

Hard lymph nodes below the jaw which are not going even with a month of antibiotics are suspicious.
Usually they enlarge in response to infection, but disappear after an appropriate antibiotic.

Persistence should be evaluated by a surgeon for possible Tuberculosis or cancer.

A lymph node biopsy may be needed if the doctor finds appropriate on clinical examination.

I hope you are fully satisfied with the guidance I gave.
I would be glad to answer any further queries. May I request you to rate your experience here before you close.
Thank you and Good luck!
