General Surgeon 's  Response
Well, you need not go for excision straightway. I would recommend FNAC (Fine Needle Aspiration Cytology) which is a non-invasive investigation. If FNAC report is negative or equivocal, it may be even repeated. If FNAC fails to establish the diagnosis, then excision biopsy may be considered.
Thanks.

THanks for the query
Lymph nodes in the neck upto 2cm is normal and nothing needs to be done about it unless it is painful and red. Since u r not having fever, u need not be on any antibiotic. I suggest u leave it alone for now
Have a healthy life
