Swollen on one side under jaw?
« on: March 07, 2014, 10:09:34 PM »
Hello everyone,

Recently I've seem to develop hypochondria after I had some sort if swelling/pulled muscle/hernia in my lower abdomen above my groin.

After that healed and went away, I kept checking for lymph nodes and other problems thinking I had HIV, or cancer.

This all took place back in the beginning of August. 

About 5 months ago now, I had a slightly scratchy throat on the right side and had an earache for about a day as well. I noticed a lump under my jaw on the right side where I can only judge is near my submandibular gland from pictures online. It doesn't cause a noticeable bulge in my neck/jaw, but it feels larger on the right side than the left side. I can also pinch a soft feeling flat mass against my trachea, and I can kind of get behind it with my finger and peel it away from my trachea.

It was sore for about 2-3 months, but is no longer sore, but it is still there.

Could my salivary gland just be in a different spot or am I looking at something more serious?!

Afraid to make an appointment with my doctor to find out what it is.

I have the same issues.  I have had pain under my jaw and in my salivary glands for a year.  But my doctor (ENT) keeps telling me I'm fine.  I even had a CT scan to prove it.  (just to shut me up because I wouldn't believe him.)  I don't think you're looking at anything serious.  Could be a lymph node, could be nothing at all.  I'm told mine is nothing at all and I think it's very likely yours is nothing as well.

Thanks for the reply! I work at a hospital in the OR smd I've developed a white coast syndrome. I had an ENT resident feel my neck, and she said she couldn't feel anything, but I can!
