In brief: The cause
Tender lymph nodes tend to be a response to bacterial more than viral infections.
But even dandruff on the scalp can cause a tender lymph node in the neck. Where is the lymph node is the first question? What is inflamed or infected next? It may be best to see a health care provider to let them look at it.

Taking an anti-inflammatory may help. It has to run its course.
