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

Does Tb neck lymphadenitis cause swollen lymph node on labia majora? Are they related?already taking treatment for 5 months.
Low risk procedure: Removing a lymph node from the neck is a minor surgical procedure, most likely a day surgery or even an office surgery.
