If a condom fails it rips down the seam and hangs in tatters from the ring at the base and is hard to take off. So that didn't happen or you would have noticed it.
You don't have any medical training so you should stop poking your lymph and irritating it and stop pretending to yourself that you made a medical diagnosis.  You are scaring yourself to death with your self diagnosis that has no chance of being correct but you believe it anyway.
See a therapist if you can't stop pretending you are a doctor because you are living in agony for no reason.

Ok , my lymph submandibular region is small and be able to feel them and it wasn't painful until I frequently touched them , all I had was vaginal protected sex ,
My lymph nodes are directly on the jaw line but feels like a nerve the right side is slightly bigger and there are 2 to 3 on each side
Am totally freaking out of this , it's been long time since I had sex still it's haunting me

Quit poking your lymph nodes because you're making them sore. You used a condom and it didn't break so you were never exposed to HIV. It's time for you to stop obsessing over a disease that you were never exposed to in the first place. If you can't do that then Google a therapist and make the first available appointment because there's nothing anyone here can do for you since you had no risk for HiV.

I didn't poke  the one near the throat it came today morning my exposure 1yr ago is urleated to this
You had NO RISK for HIV.  Whatever is causing your lymph node(s) to swell has absolutely nothing to do with HIV, since you were never at risk.  See a doctor to determine the non-HIV cause of your swollen nodes.
You don't have any medical training so you should stop pretending to yourself that you made a medical diagnosis.  You are scaring yourself to death with your self diagnosis that has no chance of being correct but you believe it anyway.
Apart from lymph node I also lost a considerable amount of weight 10kg plus
My exposure is one year ago
What should I do
Should I test , if no risk why am I having these symtoms
I was a chill person before now am anxious depressed and hopeless
You're having textbook anxiety symptoms. Google a therapist in your area and start seeing them for help with your problem.
