Lymphadenitis: Lymph nodes draining and area of infection also get inflamed and enlarged. It is important to treat the site of infection. If you have done that, the lymph glands will subside in weeks to months. If you have not had a doctor look at your ears, it is important that you see a doctor. Get HPV vaccine. Wish you good health!

See a doctor: It is not clear what the relationship the two issues have with each other. I would need to know a lot more of your history. However, the presence of an enlarged lymph node for which there are many causes is reason enough for you to see a doctor who will decide on the basis of his history and exam what the next step should be.
