Introduction: What Are Swollen Lymph Nodes? 

Swollen lymph nodes, also known as lymphadenopathy, refer to the enlargement of lymph nodes, which are small, bean-shaped glands located throughout the body. Lymph nodes play a crucial role in the immune system, helping to filter out harmful substances and produce immune cells that fight infection.  

When lymph nodes become swollen, it is often a sign that the body is fighting an infection or battling another underlying condition. Swollen lymph nodes can occur in various parts of the body, including the neck, armpits, groin, and behind the ears.  

While most cases of swollen lymph nodes are temporary and resolve on their own, it is essential to be aware of the signs and symptoms that may indicate a more serious underlying problem.
