Hi,

The matted posterior cervical lymph nodes may be due to various causes-some benign like tuberculosis, sarcoidosis etc., and some malignant like lymphomas or some metastasis from draining area. As in this case, lymph nodes are for 1 and 1/2 years, therefore some chronic conditions must be ruled out. In your case to find a final diagnosis, the biopsy of the lesion is indicated and treatment done accordingly.

Take care. Hope I have answered your question. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
