I've had a swollen lymph node and pharyngitis for three months. I'm on my third set of antibiotics (the 2nd set reduced swelling). What could this be?

Need 2nd opinion. There are several medical problems that can cause swollen lymph nodes & pharyngitis, too many to list here. If your physician has not explained the differential diagnosis possible ask for a referral to an Ear,Nose & Throat specialist for a second opinion.
