This is Dr. David

painful lymph nodes are often reactive lymph nodes which are reactive to infections in the area

infections such as mononucleosis and other viral infections can cause tender or painful lymph nodes.

usually these reactive lymph nodes can get better over time.

how large is this lymph node?

do you have a doctor you can see who can examine this area?
