Lymph Node: This is probably a lymph node within the cervical chain in the neck. These commonly pop up to fight colds and upper respiratory infections. I believe this is unrelated to the fact he is on antidepressants. Depending on the size of this thing, and whether there are other nodes associated, he should have an exam to evaluate for other nodes within the body, also liver and spleen exam.
