Normal Size Of Lymph Nodes In Groin
Can skinny people feel almost all their normal lymph nodes in neck groin and armpits? What size is considered unenlarged?

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.
