Lymph nodes : what is lymph nodes and location of lymph nodes

what is lymph nodes ?

Lymph drains through its own system of lymphatic vessels (lymphatics) into the jugulo-subclavian venous region of the neck and thus back to the heart. Along the course of the lymphatics are structures called lymph nodes. Lymph nodes are filters removing infectious materials from the lymph stream. They are also the main source of certain white blood cells. Examples of lymph nodes are the axillary nodes and the submaxillary nodes.
