HI
Well come to HCM
I really appreciate your concern, here clinical symptom are very important like if you have some loss of weight, appetite, low grade fever, family history of TB, then this could be Lymph adenitis (Tubercular infection) in such case chest x-ray does not reveal anything relevant, hope this information helps take care (For perfect diagnosis lymph node biopsy is must )
I find this answer helpful
