6 weeks: Follow up with your physician in 6 weeks for a reassessment Reactive lymph nodes tend to decrease by week 6. If not, ENT and further studies may be indicated.

Watch and wait: You may feel the node every couple of weeks, if the lymph gland doubles in size, becomes painful, ulcerates, or other nodes become enlarged, or you develop fever, or lose weight, you should see a doctor. Wish you good health!
