Its just an enlarged submandibular lymph node due to infection of the throat.It will be resolved after one week.
Nothing to worry about.

Ok - i was concerned because it appeared suddenly at the tail end of my cold. all my cold symptons were close to gone when it became swollen. dont the glands get swollen before?

Lymph node swelling always occur when our immune system is stressed and combating with the infection .It can appear in the beginning and even as a last symptom of infection when rest of signs have disappeared .
