Hard lymph node in neck for 3yrs, dull ache. Told possible scarring. How's that possible? High MCV & high RDW means distress to marrow?

Usually inflammation: Swollen lymph nodes in the neck are the sign of some form of pathology. Nodes don't enlarge spontaneously. When there is a malignancy of the oral cavity that spreads to lymph nodes they enlarge, become matted, and for the most part fix to jugular vein.

Probably nothing: Acne confined to a shoulder may be from rubbing; we see this in men who bench-press large amounts of weight.

Sudden enlargement of lymph node in neck, 1 inch.very painful. Low grade fevers are also present. Possibly serious or just fighting something minor?
