Cervical Lymph Nodes: Enlargement of the lymph nodes in the anterior chain of the neck can be a sign of active infection or occult disease. Non tender but enlarged lump nodes in the neck may be reacting to infections drainage from the head and neck including mononucleosis, &HIV disease. Lymphomas may present with non tender lymph node enlargement. Consider a head and neck exam and maybe antibiotics and needle biopsy.
