Caption: Swollen lymph glands in neck. Close-up of the swollen neck of an 80-year-old female cancer patient with cervical lymphadenopathy. Lymphadenopathy is an increase in the size, number or consistency of lymph nodes. Here, in the neck (cervical). Lymph nodes are part of the adaptive immune system and act as filters for foreign particles and cancer cells. As such, they often become inflamed when an infection or cancer is present. This patient has carcinoma (cancer) affecting the submandibular salivary glands.
