Hi Tari,

Enlargement of lymph nodes in an area of ​​the body is also called lymphadenopathy. Lymph nodes are part of the body's defense system that plays a role in fighting bacteria or viruses that infect the body and cause health problems. In addition to infection, lymphadenopathy can also be caused by immune disorders (autoimmune disease), consumption of drugs or malignancy.

If you have already checked yourself an ENT specialist doctor and declared normal then that is most likely the case. But if you still feel worried about the condition, then you can just ask the opinion of other doctors related to your complaint. I suggest that you consult with a specialist in the immunology subdivision for further examination if necessary.
