Yes, swollen lymph nodes are more common than some might think.
The medical terms for swollen lymph nodes are adenopathy or lymphadenopathy.
Lymph nodes play a vital role in fighting off sickness in the body. They act as a filter, trapping bacteria and viruses before they can spread too far.
Lymph nodes typically swell up as a response to bacteria or viruses. Though cancer can be a factor in swelling, it is very rare.

When they are swollen, they might feel tender or even painful.
