In brief: Watch for enlargemen

It is quite common to have neck nodes enlarge.
..Often due to throat infections or inflammation.As long as they are not growing beyond 1-5-2 cm(>half inch) they are likely to be benign and may resolve over a period of few months.If you see them increase to one inch in size then you need to show them to a ENT doctor as a biopsy may be necessary to check for any lymph gland related disease.
