Enlargement or swelling of lymph nodes in the neck is commonly caused by infection. Recurrent or chronic infections can make the lymph nodes progressively enlarge. There are times when even if the infection is treated, the lymph nodes persist to be enlarged. You mentioned that your throat hurts, that could be a symptom of infection.
Lymphoma can also cause lymph node enlargement. There may or may not be symptoms associated with it.
I would suggest that you go to your doctor for further evaluation. Treatment will follow once there is a definite diagnosis.
