I have a lymph node that has been enlarged for a month. I have been sick for a couple weeks, but I am better now. Should I have the node checked?

In brief: Where?
Where is the lymph node, in the neck? Neck lymph nodes (cervical lymph nodes) are common with illness and upper respiratory infections.
However, one that does not decrease in size after infection should be evaluated by your doctor.
