Enlarged lymph node


I was diagnosed with breast cancer 3 years ago and had a double mastectomy because of my family history. I have had no recurrence since then, however on my routine check up my consultant found an enlarged lymph node near my clavicle on my cancer diagnosis side. As far as I know I am suffering from no infections, will this be the start of a recurrence of my cancer?
