Enlarged lymph nodes can be anything from inflammation to tumors. The standard procedure in these cases that is practiced by most physicians is to wait for two weeks and maybe put the patient on antibiotics during that period. If they do not subside by then, further investigations to rule out malignacy are indicated.
