Doctor :   Your symptoms suggest an effusion, which is simply a collection of fluid behind the ear drum. You will need to see an EN T specialist who will prescribe the appropriate treatment to remove the fluid. This treatment may involve minor surgery. Once the collection of fluid has resolved the enlarged lymph node will also resolve.
