Can a bee sting cause lymph node to swell?

I got stung by a bee a week ago on the left side of my neck twice. 2 days later i noticed one lymph node is swollen (on the same side as the bee sting) so I was wondering can they cause that to happen or is it something else? It’s only one lymph node, it doesn’t hurt, it’s not big or really that noticeable, tender, none of that. It just don’t remember feeling it before the sting. Also, I tried to remove the stinger but I don’t think the bee left one behind.

    Yes. Your lymph nodes are where your immune system resides. A sting will most certainly get your immune system working!

    if you get a mouth ulcer your lymph nodes can swell, so I would say yes a

    bee sting could very well cause this. It's the body protecting you from any

    further damage.
