I was diagnosed with Lupus in January 2009 by a lymph node biospy of my neck nodes.  I had inflammation in pain in all my neck and facial lymph nodes for like 6 months, with a sore throat as well. 
They found necrotizing histiocytic lymphadenitis.  My pathology was done at the Mayo Clinic. 
This is how I finally got a diagnosis after suffering for so long.  I am still in pain and feeling crappy every day.  It seems like there is always something new.
I just wondered if anyone out there had the lymph node symptom or surgery with this dx???

Yes I also suffered from enlarged lymph nodes for years. Under my arms they were the size of a golf ball so painfull. I went to get testing done and it wasnt cancer no one could explain it. I just started plaquinil and there has been a reduction in the swelling thankfully.
