Do Candida patients often have swollen lymph glands? They don’t usually have them, but they can.
Lymphadenopathy, or the swelling of lymph glands, can be found in many parts of the body. Typically, we can find it around the head and neck. Lymphadenopathy can occur around the armpits and around the groin region. We can find it in the chest, even around the fingers. There are different areas where lymph nodes can swell up, but it’s seen especially commonly in the cervical (neck) region.
Remember that a swollen lymph gland doesn’t necessarily have to be caused by bacteria. It can be viral. It can be parasitic. It can be fungal. There are many different types of toxins that can affect the lymph system.

Blood tests and other investigations are often required if you have enlarged lymph glands. If you’ve got lymph nodes swollen in several areas of the body, a CT scan may be necessary. Your doctor will want to know what is going on with your immune system.
So, yes, Candida can result in swollen lymph nodes, but it isn’t very likely. Swollen glands are much more likely to be related to mononucleosis or strep throat.
