Lymphadenitis: Background, Symptoms, and Treatment

About

Lymphadenitis is the condition where there is an inflammation or enlargement of the lymphatic tissue.

Stages of cancer are examined by the number of affected lymph nodes.

  • They are distributed in clusters on the course of humor vessels placed throughout the body.
  • Can happen to both men and women
  • Lymph node enlargement is common in all type of lymphadenitis.

The primary operation of humor nodes is to separate microorganisms and abnormal cells that have collected in the humor fluid.
Lymphadenitis is a common presentation in a variety of diseases. In most cases, it simply represents a benign response to either localized or general infection.

Ages affected - between 8 - 12 – most often; between 30 - 40 - more often; 40 and above – often
