Swollen lymph nodes are most commonly found in the armpits, the groin, and under the chin. Our team of dedicated ENT specialists at The Barranco Clinic will delve into the precise causes of the swelling and create a treatment that brings relief and restores balance.

Treatments for Enlarged Lymph Nodes

As a first step, we will administer a variety of tests to determine what is causing the swollen lymph nodes. Some of the most common treatments we use include immunotherapy and antibiotics. Antibiotics are effective in fighting off infections that have triggered lymph node enlargement.

In rare cases, swollen lymph nodes may indicate cancer. If our doctors are concerned about this, they may initiate a biopsy by removing a tiny piece of the lymph node and submitting it for detailed analysis.

How Do Lymph Nodes Become Enlarged?

The lymph nodes function as front-line defense mechanisms for the body, warding off disease and infection. They are made of cells that cleanse the lymphatic fluid as it runs through the body. Each set of lymph nodes acts as a filter for a certain area of the body. When the lymph nodes get infected while doing their job, they swell up.

Symptoms of Enlarged Lymph Nodes:

  • Swelling and pain in the lymph nodes
  • Tenderness and discomfort in the surrounding areas
