Different sized nodes in neck

Hopefully this is in the right place. I think it is...

Here is my problem/question. My lymph nodes in my neck (the ones right under your jaw) are not evenly sized. I believe they are called the submandibular nodes. Anyways, on the left side of my neck, they seem fine. I can feel them, but they are sort of tucked away, and feel about the size of a pea. They are easily moveable, don't hurt, and sort of "pop" when I push in on them/it.

However, oppositely, on the right side of my neck - this same submandibular node does NOT feel the same. It feels noticeably larger and flatter. It's more pronounced, and isn't really as tucked away as the one on the other side of my neck. Maybe about 2x the size of the of the one on the left, and much, much flatter to the touch. Again, it doesn't hurt and its pretty easily moveable.

I've been trying to research this on the internet, but haven't found anything worthwhile. I was sick with strep over this past summer, but haven't really been sick since. This node has been like this for what I'd say is months, maybe even longer.

It has me worried, as you can tell.

I haven't noticed any other enlarges nodes or glands on my body.

Any input/insight/advice would be appreciated.

Thank you.
