Hi,
How are you? Cervical lymphadenopathy  or swollen nodes in the neck is usually present when there is an infection in the respiratory tract, sinuses, or throat. This is why physical examination of the neck is done to confirm and determine if the body is doing its job. The nodes usually swell because they  produce larger than normal quantities of lymphocytes to fight the infection. Hope this helps. Take care and regards.
