General Surgeon 's  Response
Thanks for your query.
From your query,i came to know that your Cervical lymph node got enlarged.Most probably,it got infected and inflammed.
As the duration of the swelling is short,it will be regressed with proper Antibiotic and anti inflammatory drugs.
Please consult your surgeon and take appropriate decision.
Wish you good luck
