Submandibular Lymph Nodes: Submandibular lymph nodes are glands that are a part of the immune system and are located below the jaw. Submandibular lymph nodes consist of lymphatic tissues enclosed by a fibrous capsule. They contain scavenging white blood cells that fight infection and its spread. They act as filters that strain out potentially harmful pathogens and microorganisms from lymph fluid that drains from bottom of the mouth. Swollen submandibular nodes are often a sign of disease or infection.
Submandibular lymph nodes contain sinuses, germinal centers, trabeculae, scavenger cells, and reticular fibers. Conditions that can afflict the submandibular lymph nodes include mouth infection, oral cancer, lymphadenopathy, swollen lymph nodes, metastasis of cancer, leukemia, and lymphoma.
