My husband noticed a hard, dime size knot on the left side of his neck. About 2 weeks ago he had a sore throat and cough. He has recently been feeling tired with upset stomach and sometimes a headache will creep up. He just noticed the knot today. Does it sound like it's just related to the cold that he has a few weeks ago?

Thanks for posting your query.
I am Dr.Ratnakar Kini and I am pleased to answer your query.

It looks like he is having an enlarged lymph node in the neck. It is unlikely to be due to the cold he had few weeks ago.
I would advice you to get it examined by his doctor.

I hope that answers your question.
