I need some guidance...anyone with a child that has been diagnosed that could give me advice would be great!

My daughter is 3. She has had a swollen lymph node in the right side of her neck for over 6 months. They treated her with antibiotics but it has actually grown. Today they did a head X-ray to check her sinuses and adenoid gland and these came back fine.

I guess my question is this...Is it possible that she has lymphoma? How will that be determined and how will it be treated?
I am worried and devastated at this point!
