In brief: Natural response

May be dental infection, viral illness, other. If it persists, continues to enlarge or becomes worse, see your family doctor. Lymph nodes help fight inflammation and get large when they do so.
It is usually helpful to you, but may produce unpleasant symptoms in the process. Hope you are better soon.
