Hello Naffas, Thank you for your question.


Lymph nodes are part of the body's immune system which plays a role in fighting infection by producing immune cells. Normally, the lymph nodes are round / oval, measuring less than 1 cm if palpated, the surface is flat, and does not feel painful. These lymph glands are spread in several parts of the body such as in the neck, behind the ears, behind the head, armpits, groin. Swollen lymph nodes can occur due to infection, autoimmune diseases, side effects of drugs, or cancer. If you feel an uneven surface, this can occur in swollen lymph nodes caused by cancer. However, before you think further, you should consult with your doctor directly to make sure because the doctor needs to do a direct examination of the gland that you intended to ascertain whether this is indeed a lymph node or because of other conditions (for example cysts, lipomas, varicose veins) . The doctor will provide further treatment if this condition requires further medical treatment.


Hopefully this information is useful.
