Lymph nodes tend to swell because of the infection in the body, like flu, sore throat or some other bacterial or viral infection. There are cases where lymph nodes stay swollen for months even, not just weeks. Now if the swelling is persistent for longer period of time, it is advised to go for a visit to doctors office.

Lymphatic system is important for body’s defense from infections so you need to be alerted if anything goes wrong. Where is the gland located? This is important also.
