Sub-mental Lymph Nodes: Sub-mental lymph nodes are glands that are a part of the immune system and are located below the chin. Sub-mental 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 teeth and inside of the mouth. Swollen sub-mental lymph nodes are often a sign of disease or infection.
Sub-mental lymph nodes contain sinuses, germinal centers, trabeculae, scavenger cells, and reticular fibers. Conditions that can afflict the sub-mental lymph nodes include oral cancer, tooth abscess, infected wisdom tooth, lymphadenopathy, swollen lymph nodes, metastasis of cancer, leukemia, and lymphoma.
