I am a 40 yr. old female a swollen lymph node (jugulargastric node) It started swelling on 7th day tonsillectomy post op. It has been over 4 months now, the docs want to remove it even though the test I have had say it is not likely cancer. I would like to know the cause of the swelling before I get it removed. Antibiotics do not do anything. Also, if you think I should get it removed, and what are the dangers in having it removed?
Any advise is greatly appreciatied.

Thank You,
