What are Lymph and Lymph Nodes?


Lymph is a clear or slightly yellowish watery fluid that:

  • Removes bacteria and certain kinds of proteins from tissues.
  • Transports fat from the small intestine.
  • Supploes the bloodstream with the mature white blood cells (lymphocytes) that are made in bone marrow.

Lymph Nodes are small, bean shaped structures near the lymphatic vessels


There are about 600 lymph nodes throughout the body, some in deep tissues and others closer to the skin. Clusters of nodes are found in the next, armpits, abdomen and groin. (These nodes can be felt with the fingers.) Other nodes are found in the chest, arms and legs.
