thanks for writing to health care magic

swollen lymph nodes could be because of several causes................ranging from infection to very rarely malignancy

so some investigations like peripheral smear for abnormal cells , total blood counts, and rarely lymph node FNAC or biopsy may be required

so pl write with further details for a better answer.
