In brief: Lymph nodes

Beside lymphoma, infections, such as hiv, tuberculosis, infectious monocluosis, and autoimmune diseases etc.
.., can cause lymphadenopathy, may need further evaluation.

In brief: Lymph nodes on neck

I agree with dr parola.
There are a lot of other causes of lymph nodes enlargement- like dr. Parola mentioned. Viral infection, bacterial infection etc- especially on the neck- need to check if you have chronic dental problems- for instance- tooth abscess/periodontitis/gingivitis etc- or if you have any chronic infection on the throat/chronic upper respiratory infection etc.
