Hi, The most common causes of enlarged lymph nodes include the following:
Reaction to nearby infection (such as a cold or a throat infection).
Direct bacterial infection of a lymph node.
Certain bodywide (systemic) infections.
Cancerous (malignant) neck lumps are more common among older people, but they may occur in younger people.
kindly consult your surgeon for further work up....
