In brief: See your oncologist
It is very important any enlarged lymph nodes be evaluated.
Hodgkins is very responsive to therapy, but can recur. It is a curable cancer even if it does come back. Please call her oncologist asap to have her seen. This may be an infection, but a cancer specialist needs to evaluate her.

In brief: May not be lymphoma
Often hodgkins is in the neck.
This may not be a lymph node, perhaps a cyst or nodule in the thyroid or the skin. At two years she should still be seeing her oncologist. Until its looked at and examined it can be anything including the lymphoma. So make an appointment but don't assume the worst.
