What is the normal size of lymph nodes in neck in cm?

Monitoring Centers

Neck
Lymphatic system absorbs/carries things too big to go into the arteries/veins like bacteria eaten by white cells/digested food. Lymph Nodes "taste" the lymph EVERYWHERE for bad stuff 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

What is the normal size of lymph nodes under neck? Can too much stress cause the lymph nodes get bigger?

1 cm or less

Stress
Lymph nodes under the neck are the 1st line of defense against bacterial and viral illness from the mouth. They form a protective barrier from the germs our mouth is exposed to. It has been a busy season with viral illness. If your are swollen then they are busy fighting infection. See your doctor if they are large and you are always tired.

Lymph nodes 1cm and below are still normal size right? So if I feel 5 in my neck but there like 0.5-0.75 cm there ok? Been there a year. Never changed

Lymph nodes in kids

Neck
Yes. It is perfectly normal for children to have multiple lymph nodes up to 1.5-2 cm diameter from ages 1 to 21, usually in the neck on either side along a chain of lymph glands stretching from behind the ear all the way down to the clavicles. They are caused by the repeated (but normal) colds, sore throats, and other viral infections that children get. No need to worry.

Dr. David Brouwer answered:

Is the tender lymph nodes on neck lasting for a month normal? one of them is 1.5 cm in sizes under my jaw. others r around 1cm on neck. thx

Lymph nodes

Neck
Tender nodes could be due to an underlying infection or inflamed area. If there are several on the neck for over a month you should see your physician as soon as possible. Evaluation for infection is necessary but if there is no evidence than a lymph node biopsy may be needed to look for abnormal cells. Please see your doctor! Good luck!
