This is Dr. David
I am a cancer doctor.

this can cause reactive lymph nodes to swell up in your neck to help fight infections.

I bet that swollen lymph node is a reactive lymph node
lymph nodes are normal parts of your body's immune system
they can swell up to help filter lymphatic fluid and help fight off infections to help keep you healthy.
