Swollen Glands (General)

Call your doctor's office for advice. You may have an infection of the hand or arm that is activating your body's immune system and causing you to have a swollen lymph node.

Call your doctor now if

  • you have diabetes

  • you are having fevers with these symptoms

  • you have a red line going up your leg from the injury toward the lymph node.
