Swollen Glands and Lumps in Children Directory

Swollen glands in children are often a sign of viral or bacterial infection. A swollen gland refers to swelling in a lymph node, commonly in the neck, armpit, or groin. Lymph nodes in the neck may become swollen if your child has a sore throat or respiratory infection. You or your doctor will feel a lump in the neck. This swelling means the body's immune system is doing its job and trying to fight off the infection. The gland may remain swollen for a few weeks after your child is sick. There are several other less common causes for swollen glands. Follow the links below to find WebMD's comprehensive coverage about swollen glands & lumps in children, what causes them, how to treat it, and much more.
