Examine groups of cervical nodes systemically.
Knowledge of grouping and location of cervical lymph nodes is necessary.

Describe size, location, mobility and character of the skin over the lymph nodes.

Note: The recommended position of the examiner for evaluation of cervical lymph nodes is from behind the patient. However, some find it equally easy to examine from the front.
