It could be inflamed lymph nodes which are part of you immune system. Thus, your body may be fighting bacteria and are causing your lymph nodes to overwork and become larger.

There's a large concentration of lymph nodes on the back of ones neck, under the armpits, in the groin area, etc.

Please see your primary care physician to have them checked to rule out any potential problems.
