Hi Anon!

Thanks for your post!

Our lymph nodes -- there are many throughout the body -- perform a lot of important functions. They are part of the immune system, helping us fight infection and viruses, and they help drain excess fluid and waste. There can be a lot of reasons why one might be swollen.

One of the most common is infection. Did your doctor discuss this with you? Have you been feeling unwell recently?
