Need more info: It is not feasible to provide a meaningful opinion without taking additional history, physical examination and may be some tests. There are no lymph nodes in the scalp. You may wish to seek the advice of a different doctor.

Get rechecked: This sounds unusual for lymph nodes. Return to the doctor, or get a second opinion. Good luck!
