What Causes Swollen Glands?

Swollen lymph nodes, often referred to as swollen glands, usually occur as a result of infection from bacteria or viruses. Common causes include upper respiratory infections, colds, ear infections, skin infections, or infected teeth.

In some cases, swollen glands may be caused by more serious conditions, such as localized or systemic infections, abscess formation, or malignancy. Viral infections, autoimmune conditions, and certain medications can also lead to swollen lymph nodes.

While swollen glands are often associated with common illnesses like colds, tonsillitis, and ear or throat infections, it's essential to seek medical attention if the swelling appears suddenly, persists, or is accompanied by other symptoms like severe pain, fever, night sweats, or unexplained weight loss.
