Prostatic is nodes: Prostatic is and urethritis treated with antibiotics and inguinal glands is okay. If you have node in the neck you need a check up by your dr.

Need more testing: Enlarged lymph nodes are usually due to infection and therefore, responds to antibiotics very well, thus, will shrink in size. Non-shrinkage of lymph nodes after a reasonable course of antibiotics calls for more testing.
