Lymph nodes are our normal defense mechanism and they get enlarged due to many conditions like skin allergies, infections, sore throat, dandruff in scalp, mouth sores etc (neck lymph nodes). Without the symptoms a small shotty, soft, mobile lymph node is clinically considered as insignificant. The problem arises when we start reading about it on the Internet. This is a very deceptive medium as it does not give information about all the causes of the lymph node enlargement. Search engine also fails to tell about the incidence in an individual perspective and put the serious and rare causes as foremost. People without the medical background may have a very wrong perception of these incidental clinically insignificant findings and always wrong conclusions like lymphoma, leukemia or cancers are made. This may create serious anxiety or panic.
In your case, it is nothing to worry about. Please relax.
