Home > Health Library > Pelvic Lymph Nodes
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.
