Infection, trauma, & cancers can cause them to enlarge with or without pain. However, a prominent node can be a benign finding. You should have your doctor take a look to provide the correct diagnosis and for reassurance if no treatment is needed. ...Read more

Lymph node: any unexplained neck mass should be evaluated and if needed you should get blood testing and lymph node evaluation, especially in view of the severe headaches, I would recommend a CT scan of the head and neck. You must be examined and tested. ...Read more

Dislocated my right shoulder in january of 2013, reduced, slung it with pt. My right collarbone looks different & right side of neck feels tense. Why?

And when the infection is acute and the lymph node swells in just hours/days, it will hurt. Secondly, there are diseases of the lymphatic system and if involves a lymph node it can swell too.
