This is Dr. David

we all have lymph nodes in our body in different lymph node beds like our neck or arm pits or groin areas.

these lymph nodes are normal parts of our immune system and help to filter the lymphatic fluid to help keep us healthy.

sometimes these lymph nodes can swell up to help fight off infections

these are called reactive lymph nodes and they can swell up temporarily for a few days to a week or two to help fight off infections

it is rare for cancer to spread to lymph nodes but it can happen and so that is why people often are scared when they feel a lymph node. they think of cancer.

but 99.999% of all swollen lymph nodes are not due to cancer.

let me know if you have other questions.

if done for now, please leave positive rating above the chat box so I can get credit for helping you today

we only get credit for helping clients after positive feedback
