Lymph Node

There are dozens of lymphoid glands around the body which are involved the body’s immune response, constantly monitoring blood and lymph flowing through them for abnormal cells, proteins, or other foreign materials. They are often the first site of cancer spread for many tumours. Many can be felt on a thorough clinical examination, and if they feel abnormal, a fine needle aspirate of the lymph node can be taken.
