LYMPH NODES: They are located in the body in a definite distribution in specific groups. Each of the lymph nodes drain a definite part of the body, however: an organ may drain into more than one group. The superficial lymph nodes are gateways to assessing the health of the entire lymphatic system. They are readily accessible to inspection & palpation; they provide some of the earliest clues to the presence of infection or malignancy.

Lymph Nodes Lymph Nodes are small structures that cannot normally be palpated clinically, unless there is pathological enlargement. Superficial nodes are in subcutaneous connective tissues and are easily palpated when enlarged. Deeper nodes lie beneath the fascia of muscles and within the various body cavities. They are not readily palpable.
