Long time swollen lymph node

Patient

Q: I have had a swollen lymph node behind my left ear for about a year and a half/almost 2 years now. There is no pain. In fact, I almost forget it's there... only notice when I touch it and can feel that it's larger than the other. I have no other symptoms that I can recall. What could be causing this?
