No: We all have lymph nodes and sometimes they will swell. The lymph nodes are part of your natural defense. They help remove infections and other substances from your body. They can swell in response to infection, or cancer, or nonspecific inflammation. I suspect yours is from a viral infection. Your physician can help clarify this for you.See 1 more doctor answer

Evaluation is key: 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.See 1 more doctor answer
A while: If due 2 infection they gradually decrease in size but may always b palpable.
Fight local infectio: Lymph nodes enlarge in response to inflammation in the area from which their drainage occurs. If you have an infected gum or tooth, have a one-sided tonsillar infection, or other similar conditions, this may be the explanation. If the node continues to enlarge, changes character (becomes hard, fixed, tender, warm to touch, etc.), or fails to resolve in time, have it examined by a doctor.
