Pelvic Lymph Nodes

Pelvic lymph nodes

Pelvic lymph nodes are part of the lymph system, which carries fluid, nutrients, and waste material between the body tissues and the bloodstream. Lymph nodes are connected by a system of channels that run throughout the body. Cancer may spread through the lymph nodes to distant parts of the body.
