    Yes ths is true. Lymph nodes in the neck area tend to be near the surface of the skin. They will swell, especially when one is ill. If your child has issues with their tonsils becoming infected, their lymph nodes are likely to be tender because of this. The lymph nodes are connected with the immune system.
