Not Normal: Chronically swollen submandibular lymph nodes is not a normal event. A visit with your primary physician would be recommended to evaluate the swollen areas and have the appropriate studies performed to determine the anatomical structures that are swollen and if abnormal, diagnose the problem and recommend treatment.
