Keep watch: A local lymph node usually gets large with primary herpes infection, which is what you may have had. Watch the lymph node and assess its size every week. If it doubles in size, other lymph nodes become larger, you get fever or the node becomes painful, it would be prudent to consult a doctor. ...Read more

Could it be healthy if one of my lymph nodes is swollen ?

Monitoring Centers: Lymphatic system absorbs/carries things too big to go into the arteries/veins like bacteria eaten by white cells and digested food. Lymph nodes "taste" the lymph for anything bad like bacteria/viruses/cancers, etc. When it detects a problem, it alerts the immune system and your body reacts. They enlarge in response to the inflammation they create when they react. They shrink when all is well. ...Read more

Probably: Lymph nodes may swell in response to an infection or other problem. They should go back to normal size but don't always. The pathology shows that you had an infection or inflammation. If any nodes change or continue to enlarge, further work up may be needed. ...Read more

Lymph nodes on neck still slightly swollen 3 weeks after flu. GP says no  cause for concern. Is this normal?

For a long time: After an illness that produces swollen lymph nodes the nodes can stay somewhat swollen and tender for a long time, even weeks. Sometimes a slight swelling can remain forever! That being said, the general trend week to week should be one of improvement, smaller size and less pain. If this does not occur you should follow-up with your doctor. ...Read more

Unlikely: It's possible but unlikely, particularly if there are no other enlarged nodes. It is more likely related to infection or inflammation even if you don't have other symptoms. However, the "no normal hilum" statement is a little concerning. Please consult your physician to determine if more workup is needed. ...Read more
