In brief: Not likely

Lymph nodes which enlarge are not necessarily, and in fact rarely infected, but are responding to a regional inflammation by fighting whatever is producing the inflammation.
Lymph nodes can become infected, just like any other area of the body, but if they are it is unlikely that the size will go down.
