Maybe never: It is difficult to know exactly what you are talking about without being able to examine the area. However, it sounds like the initial problem with the lymph node has resolved. But now you are still able to feel the node. It's possible that it may never disappear. As long as it's small and not tender, that's OK. If it's large - an inch or bigger, or sore, you should see your primary doctor.

See an ENT or: Your doctor - an ENT is an ear nose and throat doctor. You need to be examined to determine the reason for the swollen gland and get treated.
