Any reason why are lymph nodes on neck swollen?

Many Reasons: 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.

Lymph nodes under neck swollen especially i've noticed after the bath. i usually rub and wash hardly that area to keep clean while bathing.any connec?

Left shpulder blade pain going into neck. Swollen lymph nodes under arm.  Pinched nerve?

Pinched Nerves: Swollen lymph nodes in the arm pit is a concern for a physician. It is possible there are two different pathologies or conditions going on here.

It would be a stretch to equate a pinched nerve to swollen glands like this. I would see a doctor and soon. ...Read more

I was sick 2 years ago so badly all lymph nodes in neck swelled, one is still swollen but not bad at all. Is it calcified. Doesn't hurt, can't see it?

Maybe: Sometimes lymph nodes react to infections and when the infection is over they stay enlarged. If the node is not tender and stable probably nothing to worry about. You would need some type of Xray to tell if it is calcified. Don't think that is worth he trouble. ...Read more

Yes, and several: Lymph nodes part of our immune defense system for virus, microorganisms & cancer. About 1% of blood plasma (water) which departs arterial-end of capillaries is not picked back up at venous-end, body wide. Lymph vessels return this excess water (& whatever is in the water) from around cells back into the blood stream. Lymph nodes, full of white blood cells, remove items/cells recognized not healthy. ...Read more
