What causes swollen lymph node under the ear?

Hi, I have a swollen lymph node in my next under my ear - (behind jaw) I ve been told it s related to my PCOS and it will reduce the longer I m on the pill? Is this correct? I didn t realise the two were linked. It s around 2p in size, doesn t hurt nor move. Many thanks,
