Hello,

A lymph node enlargement in neck indicates infection in the area drained by the nodes (teeth, ear, and nose throat skin of face). That is confirmed by the fact that it is decreasing after antibiotic course.

Monocytes up to range of 0.2 to 0.9 are within normal limits.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
Dr. Vasudha Jayant Athavale
