So can we!: Every time we examine our patients we check the lymph nodes. Tenderness means that there is activity,and inflammation in the area and it may be an indication that you have infection draining from the mouth. Swollen glands can indicate serious viral infection. Why not have your doctor or dentist check the area immediately.
