Neck gland examination. Paediatric doctor pressing the glands of a six year old boy, to check for swelling of the glands (lymphadenopathy). Swollen glands are very common in children and can be caused by a minor infection. The glands, or lymph nodes, are part of the body's immune system and contain white blood cells that attack invading micro-organisms. During an infection the glands enlarge as they become more active, producing warm, tender lumps that can be felt under the skin around the neck.
