Lymphatic System

  • The lymphatic system is part of the body’s complex immune system. Lymph is a clear fluid which travels in tiny channels along the major vessels toward the heart. There are two large thoracic ducts which collect lymph and drain into the circulatory system at the subclavian veins.
  • The lymph nodes are pea-sized collections of tissue located throughout the lymphatic system in chains and clusters. They serve as filters to catch bacteria, cancer cells or other foreign material.
  • Regional lymph nodes filter lymph from a particular body region. Axillary nodes, for example, collect lymph draining from the breast and are a protective mechanism against early breast cancer.
  • Sentinel nodes are the first node metastastic cells reach, and there are new imaging techniques which can help determine if metastases have occurred.
