Can lymphatic drainage cause swollen lymph nodes (bubo)?

Swelling of the lymph nodes, known as bubo, typically occurs as a result of inflammatory or infectious processes affecting the lymph nodes. Although rare, in some cases, lymphatic drainage therapy may cause more significant swelling of the lymph nodes, which could be an indicator of an underlying health condition and should be evaluated by a healthcare professional. It is important to communicate any pre-existing health conditions to the massage therapist during the session.
