Hi. A single lymph node in the neck, less than 1cm which is freely mobile is usually not something to worry about. And since the USG also mentions that it is benign reactive node, it could just mean a mild infection. Watch out for any increase in the size, pain, or decrease in the mobility of the swelling. If any of these symptoms appear, do consult an ENT specialist at the earliest. Warm regards, Dr Aanchal A Mittal, Therapeia centre, Bangalore
