In brief: Likely inflammatory
This is likely a inflammatory lymph node related to his recent illness.
This should be checked out by your md. If multiple lymph nodes they may want to do a ultrasound or ct to look at lymph nodes. Less likely a biopsy could be preformed.

In brief: NECK LYMPH NODES
You must wait for the result of the x-rays.
It could be due to an infection from the flu, but the x-rays may be able to make the diagnosis.
