Lymph Nodes

Feb 8, 1999

Where are the lymph nodes near the elbows located? Are they in the front of the arm, just below the lower bicep in the soft tissue or behind the elbow behind the tricep? Have swolen nodes, I think there, but no where else. Would it be common for these nodes to swell, but none in the neck, groin, armpits, etc?

Response from Dr. Holodniy

Behind, by the elbow bones. Swelling of these nodes alone indicates a local inflammatory process. HIV infection is unlikely. MH
