    Lymph nodes are components of lymphatic system, which is a part of immune system. Usually swollen lymph nodes indicate some infection. Lymph nodes are located in many parts of human body, many of which are in neck, armpit and groin. Usually they are small, bean-shaped and soft nodules tissue. Many conditions might cause lymph nodes enlarged, infections, inflammations, virus, cancer and cancer of blood. Infections will increase the white blood cells as response to the allergen. White blood cells could help fight infections. Don't be scared to see any word of cancer. Normally speaking, lymph nodes are not a big deal. I once got these nodes behind my ear. I was scared. When I visited my doctor, he told me it was not a big deal. He even didn't prescribe any medicine to me. Small infection caused lymph nodes enlarged. When infections are gone, these swellings are gone with them. So don't worry too much about your once eye infection.
