Hi welcome to health care magic forum,

Gland in neck or inside of your throat ?? Inside of your throat may be tonsillar enlargement .

over neck are called lympahdenopathy.

Signs of tumour is growing in size or in number due course of time.

I would suggest to see an ENT specialist and go for thorough exsmination.

You can request for a FNAC if it is on neck or may be excisional biopsy in needed.

You may undergo for a tonsillectomy if it is asymmetrical tonsillar enlargement.
