hi Khalid;
Enlarged lymph node can be benign or sometimes tuberculous.To rule out Tuberculosis get investigated-CBC;ESR;X-ray of chest;& Mantoux test done.Check it with a doctor so that you get proper opinion after examination.If everything is normal then the doctor may prescribe some antibiotic.If required he/she may advise you a biopsy.
So better consult a doctor close by.
