Hi there,
Thank you for writing to us.
The important thing here is that there is only one node and that has been there for a long time. Also it becomes painful when there is an infection. All of this means that this is not something serious.
Lymph nodes in our body are present to fight infection.
If a node is painful it means that it is fighting with the infection.
So all in all nothing to worry about and this does not sound anything serious.
Kindest Regards
