No, small sub-centimeter lymph nodes of the neck is not always considered abnormal. There are some lymph nodes located in the neck that are larger than others, and they do not have to have pathogens in them.
Lymphadenitis is an inflammation of the lymph nodes. Lymphadenitis can make the lymph nodes have a small pebbly feeling when touched.
Normal lymph nodes are small and show no cancerous cells under a microscope. Abnormal lymph nodes may be enlarged and show malignant cells when examined under a microscope.
Pancreaticoduodenal lymph nodes. Regards Time is imaginary
The condition of small, pebbly lymph nodes is known as shotty lymphadenopathy.
Yes. They are very small.
There are lymph nodes throughout the human body. Lymph nodes range in size from being as small as the head of a pin to the size of an olive. There are groups of lymph nodes which can normally be felt in the groin, underarms, and neck.
The small oval structures that cluster along the lymph vessels are called lymph nodes. The nodes that can be palpated are the cervical, axillary and inguinal nodes.

Lymph nodes, that's what everyone is saying...
The use of deodorant should not affect lymph nodes. Deodorant is applied on the skin. Lymph stays inside the body in the lymph system. While a very small amount of deodorant could enter the body through the pores, it is miniscule and not enough to affect the lymph nodes.
Small, rounded structures along the small vessels of the lymphatic system that are part of the immune system. Lymph nodes are tiny spherical structures the size of a pin head in groups into which the lymphatic vessels drain through afferent vessels. The nodes filter the lymph, storing and destroying microorganisms by the production of lymphocytes. Once filtered the lymph leaves the node through the efferent lymph vessel. Popliteal, inguinal, iliac, abdominal, axillary, cubital and cervical are examples of groups of lymph nodes.
Small, compact structures lying along the channels that carry lymph, a yellowish fluid. Lymph nodes produce white blood cells (lymphocytes), which are important in forming antibodies that fight disease.
After it travels through the lymphatic system, the lymph nodes filter lymph, trapping bacteria and other disease-causing microorganisms in the fluid.Lymphatic vessels open into veins and the fluid re-enters the bloodstream.As lymph flows through the lymphatic system, it passes through small knobs of tissue called lymph nodes. Lymph nodes filter the lymph, trapping bacteria and other microorganisms that cause disease. When the body is fighting an infection, the lymph nodes enlarge. If you've ever had "swollen glands" when you've been sick, you've actually had swollen lymph nodes.
