My father has a swollen 4 to 5 cm mass in his chest, it is a soft mass, what can be the cause of this? He also has swollen lymph nodes in his neck.

If I had a CBC and chest xray in december and they were clear, should I be concerned of swollen lymph nodes in my neck? What could be causing them?
Lymphadenopathy: Multiple enlarged lymph nodes in the neck can be residual of a viral illness but they should shrivel over time. In my experience this is more common in younger patients. In adults, if they don't recede or if they enlarge further a biopsy is often done to see what the pathology is. A normal CBC and chest xray isn't enough to rule out some diseases.

2 swollen lymph nodes in neck history of melanoma CBC normal apart from high lymphocytes chest X-ray normal, doc not doing any more tests, worried.
Questions: Lots of questions to help figure this out. Where are the nodes, where was the melanoma, how deep was it and how was it treated? How long ago was the melanoma found? If the nodes are in the drainage basin of the primary melanoma, that is more cause for worry than if they are elsewhere.
Infection to tumor: The dx of swollen lymph nodes in neck depends on size, location and symptoms of pain. In upper neck 2 nodes can represent spread of throat infection to ear, spread from parotid gland. In mid neck tumor can arise from metastatic thyroid and in supraclavicular fossa, an upward spread from lungs. Biopsy if persistent or enlarging can show lymphoma, infection or tumor metastatic tumor.
Treat the cause: Swollen lymph nodes are usually due to an infection in the area and some times due to tumors such as lymphoma. It is not feasible to know the casue without a history, physical examination and may be lab tests.
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.
Inflammation in H&N: Painful swollen nodes an indication of an inflammatory process in the H&N area. If the nodes are high in the posterior neck region, examine the scalp for an infection. If in anterior triangle mid neck one should do endoscopy to see if lesion in area of larynx or cords. In supraclavicular area, inflammation apex of lung can cause the problem and chest X ray can help. Bx if necessary.
Get an exam: With your doc. Lymph nodes do not go up and down in 8-12 hrs.
They are palpable: Normal sized lymph nodes are quite small and not palpable. If the nodes enlarge to a size of 1 to 2 cm, then they are palpable if you run down your fingers over the skin of your neck. Very large lymph nodes (over 2 inches in size) can be visible to the eye. But that is pretty late to discover them.
See a doctor: Painful, enlarged lymph nodes in the neck should be checked out by a doctor. They could be a symptom of a serious infection or worse yet a tumor.
In several: Areas makes one think of a generalized infection or lymphoma.
