Lymph Nodes

I first noticed a painless lump on the left side of my neck 6 months ago. During this time I have lost over 11 kilos and the lump has grown. I have not been sick at all during this time. 2 weeks ago It started to become painful and I couldn't move my neck at all so I wen't to the Doctor. He felt the lump and said it was an enlarged Lymph Node, he prescribed me antibiotics and said it is due to an infection, I did mention to him that I have not been sick.. he didn't seem alarmed and sent me on my way. I've been on the antibiotics for a week now, the lymp node is the same size but is not painful anymore although my neck is still a bit stiff and I have noticed a small lymph node on the right side of my neck that was not there last week. Has anyone else been through the same thing? I do feel a bit scared about this but because the doctor was not alarmed I feel a bit dramatic.. Has anyone gotten a second oppinion from another doctor? What was the out come?
