In brief: No

We all have lymph nodes and sometimes they will swell.
The lymph nodes are part of your natural defense. They help remove infections and other substances from your body. They can swell in response to infection, or cancer, or nonspecific inflammation. I suspect yours is from a viral infection. Your physician can help clarify this for you.
