No: Cold viruses may cause mild enlargement of nodes in the neck only.
Lymph nodes act as a trap or filter to prevent germs from spreading to other parts of the body, and in so doing become enlarged and tender. Cuts on your arm, or using a razor to shave the axilla, can introduce bacteria which get trapped by your lymph nodes. **See your Dr if swollen glands persist SEE:http://bit. Ly/1E6i2EW ...Read more

Lymph nodes under the arm, I want to know can they become inflamed from using the monkey bars?

Lymph nodes under the arm, I want to know can they become inflamed from using the monkey bars?
