What is the main function of lymph nodes?I did this in a test and one of my classmate argue with me.

It is an objective question.The original answer that the teacher gave is that lymph nodes produce lymphocytes and fight against infection while my classmate argued that it store interstitial fluid.Which is correct?

Lymphocytes are produced by lymph nodes...

Transport of interstitial fluid back to into the blood is a function of the entire lymphatic system - it is not specific to lymph nodes...
