Say: limf node
Your wonderful lymph nodes! Lymph nodes are little round or bean-shaped bumps that
you usually can't feel unless they become swollen. Lymph nodes are like filters that
remove germs that could harm you.
They contain lymphocytes, which are special cells that fight infection. Sometimes,
germs can cause some of the lymph nodes to swell, so you might feel your swollen lymph
nodes on your neck when you have a sore throat. But don't worry — these lumps
usually just means your body is cleaning up its act!
