What does an eccentric hilum for a 2.2cmx1.2cm cervical lymph node with .5cm hypogenic area inside indicate? Lymphoma or just reactive node?

In brief: Impossible to tell

If this is the only area.
.Your doctor may elect to follow this..But if there are other areas or there are clinical issues..They may elect for a biopsy to determine the clinical importance.

In brief: Hard to say...

It is very difficult to say based on the limited information you provided.
The diagnosis of lymphoma relies on a constellation of clinical signs and symptoms including unexplained weight loss, fatigue, lack of appetite, night sweats, progressively enlarging lymph nodes, etc. Ultimately, a lymph node biopsy is necessary in order to confirm or completely rule out a diagnosis of lymphoma.
