Probably related...: If, for example, your acne is on your thigh and is somewhat inflamed and your enlarged node is in your groin area on the same side, the white blood cells contributing to the acne inflammation are also causing the enlarged lymph node. If the node is located on a different part of your body (neck), they are most likely not related.
