How do antigens benefit the immune system?

Antigens are: proteins, polysaccharides, glycoproteins, or glycolipids. They cause the lymph system to respond by producing antibodies. Each time the body is challenged by an antigen, the stronger the immune system becomes. An infant, at first, gets many colds but as she gets more of them, she will have more antibodies to fight off colds she has had before. She will have fewer colds because she has the antibodies for many of them now.

How does the immune system respond to the throat cancer?

Cancer is somewhat confusing to the immune system since it is an aberrant form of the body's own cells which the immune system is not supposed to attack. Sometimes the immune system can detect that the cancer cell is not a normal part of the body, and therefore it will destroy the cancer, but quite often the immune system cannot detect the abnormality of the cancer cell and will ignore it. That is precisely why cancer is so dangerous.

What does a lymph node do?

Lymph nodes (erroneously called lymph glands) are a part of the lymphatic system, a component of the body's immune system. Swollen lymph nodes may signal an infection.
There are several groups of lymph nodes, which are small, bean-shaped, soft nodules of tissue.
The ones most frequently enlarged or swollen are found in the neck, under the chin, in the armpits, and in the groin.
