What are Lymph Nodes and Lymph Glands?
A lymph node or lymph gland is an oval-shaped organ of the immune system, distributed widely throughout the body including the armpit and stomach and linked by lymphatic vessels. Lymph nodes are garrisons of B, T, and other immunity cells. They are part of the lymphatic system, which carries fluid (lymph fluid), nutrients, and waste material between the body tissues and the bloodstream.
Location of Lymph Nodes?
Lymph nodes may be found singly or in groups. And they may be as small as the head of a pin or as large as an olive. Groups of lymph nodes can be felt in the neck, groin, and underarms. They are packed tightly with the white blood cells called lymphocytes and macrophages.
What are Swollen Lymph Nodes?
Lymph nodes are small cells surrounded by an outer membrane. The lymphocytes present in the nodes generate antibodies that fight foreign substances and gems.
