Cervical lypmh node excision

I had an excision of the cervical lymph node 2 weeks ago. I was place on some antibiotics , which I took. But I still have the region swollen...a lot bigger than the lymph node itself. Any thing I should be worried about? I am 27 years

After excission of lymphnode i think you have developed inflamatory swelling but this has to be subsided within a week, but if you have swelling after 2 weeks of surgery stongly suggest infection of region, secondly biopsy report is very important in treatment, consult your doctor for further management.
Take care
