Radiologist 's  Response
lymph nodes in our neck usually enlarge in pathologies related to head and neck like:
-ENT infections
-tumors
-inflammation

lymph nodes are generally considered enlarged when greater then 1 cm.
since your lymph nodes are sub centimeter, they are most likely reactive and due to some ongoing or previous infections.
