In brief: It's not
Cervical (neck) or any other location lymphadenopathy isn't a disease.
It is a sign/symptom. It may be anything on a huge differential diagnosis list. See discussion in this manuscript: http://www.Mayoclinicproceedings.Org/article/s0025-6196(11)64620-x/fulltext.

In brief: Big neck lymph nodes
Enlarged lymph nodes in the neck are usually due to a cold or other respiratory infection.
They can also be seen with some unusual infections and tumors, though this is much less common.
