What take place in lymph lodes?

In your blood from your arteries flows into your capillaries. Most of that returns to your heart through your heart. Some returns through the lymph system. The lymph system carries lymph or a fraction of your blood through your system checking for pathogens. It brings them to the lymph nodes. The nodes check the lymph for infection. If the lymph nodes find infection, they start producing antibodies against the infection and inform the rest of the body that infection exist. They sometimes become inflamed when they collect bacteria faster than they can destroy it. Still, they stop it rather than let it go on through the body. They let the lymph go from the lymph nodes back to the veins and back to the heart to recirculate.

What does lymphadenopathy means?

Lymphadenopathy is the disease or enlargement of lymph nodes. Lymph nodes are small round structures that are present all over the body. They house cells (most commonly white blood cells) that are involved in protecting the human body from infections. Lymphadenopathy can occur due to a number of reasons: Infections - the most common reason Lymphomas and leukemias - cancers of white blood cells in the lymph nodes and blood Cancers in other body parts that sometimes spread to lymph nodes Diseases of the immune system, such as lupus and sarcoidosis Other uncommon diseases The neck, armpits and groin are the body parts where enlarged lymph nodes are most easily felt. The appearance of lumps in these areas is the most common sign of lymphadenopathy. To find out the cause of lymphadenopathy, doctors may advise tests that include a fine needle test (FNAC or a fine needle aspiration cytology) or the removal of a part or whole node (lymph node biopsy). The treatment of lymphadenopathy varies depending on the reason for lymph node enlargement.
