They enlarge in response to the inflammation they create when they react. They shrink when all is well. ...Read more

Lymph nodes: Swollen lymph nodes are common and usually will swell secondary to some type of infection or allergy. I expect your problem should be short lived. However some lymph nodes will swell and remain palpable. This is usually not a concern. However, if they become big or spongy that can be a sine of lymphoma. Get checked! ...Read more

Laser tattoo removal on left arm. noticed swollen lymph nodes on right side and left side of neck been there for 6 months now. Should I worry?

Rare complication: One of the complications of laser removal is formation of lymph node reaction to pigments-granulomaas,often close to tattoo sites. If these are away from sites, please check with your dermatologist or pMD because biopsy may be required. Mercuric sulphides and other metals in the red and yellow pigments are also toxic to tissue and organs so have a check up. Not to worry, lymph nodes often benign. ...Read more
