Neck swelling. Taking myfortic, stable graft. Renal transplant done. History of tacrolimus. Treatment?

Hello Dr. My husband has had a renal tranplant 10 years ago. At the moment he is taking only myfortic and his graft is stable. Previously he too Tacrolimus (Cellcept for the first 5 years). He has noticed some swelling in his neck and is wondering if it could be related. His Nephrologist usually checks his neck at consultations but we don t know why. Could you advise? Thanks A
