Lymph node: You should not be worried, lymph nodes get bigger every time they are exposed to a toxin, virus, bacteria, fungus or parasites. It could be due because you had a "flu" recently. However, if it increases in size, becomes hard, not mobile or persists for months then you need to have it biopsied or removed for further examination.
