Lymph node beneath the ear swollen for 6months

Hello All,
Some six months back I had pain in my jaw and in next two weeks I developed a single swollen lymphnode beneath my ear. It troubles and causes pain sometimes. After 3 months I went to ENT specialist, he diagnosed swollen node and orders USG. USG came back normal, CBC was normal as well. Now I am having a dull pain in my jaw and gums near the swollen node. Please suggest what should I do. Is this a big concern. The lymph node has not grown is size.
Please suggest ne what action should I take.

Have you had a dental exam? Some of the symptoms could be caused by gum disease or tooth decay. https://www.healthline.com/health/gingivostomatitis

No I havent dont that..
I will go for the dental check up.
However do you think this could be lymphoma..?
Also to add I do no have fever and no fatigue. However I do experience bleeding gums time and again.
I am not a doctor and cannot guess at a diagnosis, but signs to not point to lymphoma.  You would likely have multiple swollen nodes that are painless: https://www.mayoclinic.org/diseases-conditions/lymphoma/symptoms-causes/syc-20352638
The symptoms you are describing sound more like an infection, although you had a normal CBC.  You could have an impacted tooth.  I would start by ruling out any dental problems, given the pain in your jawline and gums.
Thank you very much for all the advise..I will Follow up with Dental care..
Many thanks.
