I think you mean the lymph node is 1.6 x 0.55cm in size.

a 5.5cm lymph node would be about the size of your fist.

if you are squeezing and pressing on the lymph node frequently, it will continue to stay swollen

are you touching and squeezing and feeling the node often?

a 1.6 x 0.55cm lymph node is a normal sized lymph node.
