swollen lymph node???? what is causing it???

my husband last year had a early stage melanoma on his right ear. he had it removed surgically. now for the last few months he has a swollen lypmph node on his neck - the same side where the melanoma was found last year. he had a CT scan done a few weeks ago and they said it was not cancer. They don't know what it is... made a virus he is fighting perhaps they think. anyway i feel like it is too weird that he had early stage melanoma on that same ear and now a swollen lyphm ...maybe it spread ?? is that possible help ??? don't know what else to now::

Dont worry about it, swollen lymph nodes are common, you can get them with tooth., earaches, a lot of stuff. If you ARE worried go to an oncologist, and you will be at ease.
