Are these black-eyed pea sized neck lymph nodes a cause for concern?

In brief: Possibly
Lymph nodes often enlarge due to inflammation.
A sore throat can enlarge them as they do their job, but that should resolve. Persistence of neck nodes a month or more after an infection clears or in the abscence of an infection raises concern and should be evaluated by your doc.
