Knot on back of neck

I have had a small knot on the back of my neck for almost two months.  I have had some allergies during this time, but have not other health issues.  Could this lump/knot be a lymph node that has enlarged?  I just visited my doctor and she took a blood test and suggested that I come back in 4 months.

I don't have any other symtoms.  Any thoughts?

It could be one of many things - it's not likely thyroid if it is on the back of the neck -- would go with your doctor's advice or consider a second opinion from a surgeon or ENT.
