Lymph nodes are small bean-shaped glands that filter lymph, the fluid that circulates through the lymphatic system. They are a vital part of our immune system because they help our body fight infections and diseases. Lymph nodes are located throughout the body, and normally they aren’t palpable or painful. But, once they become enlarged or swollen, they can indicate a number of health issues.


Swollen lymph nodes in the neck area can signalize minor infections such as colds, or serious conditions like inflammation or cancer.

Amplified lymph nodes could be as small as a pea or as big as a cherry. But, it doesn’t mean that you are affected by some disease if you notice enlarged lymph nodes. They can have less than a centimeter in diameter. Anyway, once they swell, you will start to feel them.

Once you notice your enlarged lymph nodes, you should visit your doctor. If they are small, you can treat them by yourself.

Garlic is effective anti-inflammatory and antibacterial herbal remedy that cures infection and improves the immune system. Garlic decreases welling and diminishes inflammation in case of swollen lymph node.
