swollen lymph nodes

my friends 3 year old American pit bull had swollen lymph nodes in neck the size of golf balls, they are smaller now an hard as a rock, he said they have been this way for about a month.  Of course I told him needed to go to vet right away, unfortunately my friend is on disability and does not have the money to take her and I have 5 of my own so do not have the money to offer.  What would cause this swelling to happen?  She is a healthy dog and stays inside most all the time except to go potty.  Is there anything we can try to help her?
