Is Levofloxacin advisable for a lump on the neck?

I have a lump on my neck. The Dr xrayed my neck, chest and didn t find a reason for the lump. He has ordered a CT scan for tomorrow. The prescription he gave me is levofloxacin 750Mg. He thinks it s only an infection sense it s not sore. Isn t there a prescription that will accomplish the same results with out having 5 pages of wornings.
