Monitoring Centers

Veins
Lymphatic system absorbs/carries things too big to go into the arteries/veins like bacteria eaten by white cells and digested food. Lymph Nodes "taste" the lymph for anything bad like bacteria/viruses/cancers, etc. When it detects a problem, it alerts the immune system and your body reacts. They enlarge in response to the inflammation they create when they react. They shrink when all is well

Lipoma?

Sounds like you palpated a lipoma or benign fatty tumor( non- cancerous). Unlikely area for lymph nodes. See your PCP for evaluation. Best of Luck!
