Needs monitoring: An enlarged lymph node in the neck is often due to infection in the throat and its surroundings. Since your node is nearly 2cm, it needs to be monitored for further changes over the next 1-3 months. If it is benign it will decrease in size and eventually go away. If you find the size to be increasing then you have to get further medical evaluation which may include a biopsy of this lymph node.
