An enlarged cervical lymph node since one month needs to be thoroughly investigated. U should take a detailed consultation on video or physically and do some investigations like usg of neck and fnac if its not a vascular swelling.

Consider for a detail evaluation, clinical for physical examination. Mostly it will be a reactive node However possibility of TB should be ruled out
