Lymph nodes are one component in the human body system that has its own channels and drainage, different from blood vessel channels. Lymph nodes in the human body can be found in various places, such as
Behind the ear

Swelling of the lymph nodes can occur in an infection condition where a reaction occurs in the production of immune cells in the body so that the appearance of a lump in the lymph node area can be accompanied by several symptoms such as fever, pain in the lump, redness in the lump, flu-like symptoms, decreased appetite.
It is advisable to consult a doctor for further examination and management related to your condition. Anamnesis needs to be done about complaints about the lumps performed, physical examination of the lump because the location of the lump can help differentiate the diagnosis, as well as supporting examinations if needed such as blood tests or imaging.
