Cause?: Sometimes the lymph nodes are swollen from an infection in the head/neck area. If that's the case then the underlying infection needs to be treated. Sometimes the lymph nodes themselves are infected. You should see your doctor or an Urgent Care to get treated.

Depends: If looks like infection, treat with antibiotics first. If persist and/or associated with other symptoms, surgically excised if possible. Further treatment will depend on the biopsy.
