Hi there,
You should see a doctor and follow medical advise, not all swollen lymph nodes are lymphoma and in case the doctor feels its due to infection, then probably after a course of antibiotics it may disappear. The decision to go or not go for biopsy would be best taken along with the medical opinion as to if it is needed at all.
