Hi.. A lone enlarged lymphnode is not of major concern. I think, just follow up with the swelling.. If you develop any other symptoms and any changes in the swelling, consult your doctors then...

welcome to HealthcareMagic
An enlarged lymphnode can be due to infections or even it can be a benign enlargement;so see if there is any pain tenderness;redness on that and let the doctor examine.As for hernia see the off and on swelling when standing and do coughing to see if the swelling gets protruded on cough and it goes away when pushed inside this is the diagnostic test during physical examination used to identify hernia.Such a swelling is hernia.Follow up with your doctor and get examined again.He will o the needful.
