Monitoring Centers: 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. ...Read more

The lower part of my neck is swollen. Could that be a thyroid issue? We just got back from a long road trip. I didn't know if that is inflammation natural from sitting in a car for a couple days.

The lower part of my neck is swollen. Could that be a thyroid issue? We just got back from a long road trip. I didn't know if that is inflammation natural from sitting in a car for a couple days.

Doctor can check: If it's a thyroid problem, then the car trip would just be a coincidence. However, people who sit a lot on any kind of trip may get blood clots. The doctor will likely check to see if there is a blood clot that might be causing neck swelling. A tumor can also block blood flow, and cause neck swelling (and the car trip would again be a coincidence). It's time to see the doctor now, and not wait. ...Read more

The left side of my neck is swollen had a lymph node but it went away my gland and neck is still swollen how can I get rid of it?

Maybe never: It is difficult to know exactly what you are talking about without being able to examine the area. However, it sounds like the initial problem with the lymph node has resolved. But now you are still able to feel the node. It's possible that it may never disappear. As long as it's small and not tender, that's OK. If it's large - an inch or bigger, or sore, you should see your primary doctor. ...Read more

Infected lymph nodes: Usually, a person who gets enlarged lymph nodes from an infection in her throat, head, or neck, will get rid of her infection and then her nodes will shrink down to regular size. Once in a while, a person gets infectious germs spreading to one or more neck nodes, and the germs get the upper hand. The result is a big abscess in the node (s), needing antibiotics and further care. Must see a doctor. ...Read more
