See clinic doc: Persistent enlarged lymph node after a year of mononucleosis is unusual though some rare individuals may have these reactions to the virus Epstein Barr. To know if the lymph node is related to the above, it is best to be examined by a clinic doc or specialist to review adequacy of biopsy or imaging. There are tests on biopsied tissue to tell if Its infection,other non neoplastic or something else
