Ask your dentist: Without knowing the diagnosis, it's hard to say exactly what your problem is.
Dr. William Hunt
Dentistry 43 years experience
Ask: Contact your dentist to find out what they said. Look it up online. If you are still concerned, get a second opinion.
Dr. Paul Grin
Pain Management 36 years experience
Relax...: Most swollen glands or lumps under the jaw are not cause for concern if checked by your dentist or doctor.
