Swollen Lymph Node post Radiation
I had surgery to remove part of my parotid gland 10 weeks ago. 45 nodes were removed and all were clear. Had 1 node with melanoma within the gland. I had radiation therapy to my neck and finished 10 days ago. Now I have a lymph node starting to swell beside the original incision. My question is , can radiation therapy cause lymph nodes to swell? I appreciate any responses.
