Sometimes: Any infection of the sinuses, scalp, face, ears, nose, mouth, teeth, and throat could cause enlargement of the cervical lymph nodes. Usually, the lymph nodes would resolve when the infection clears. If lymph nodes are large (> 1-2 cm) and persist then consider evaluation further with ENT specialist.
