Probably no: Lymph nodes are usually enlarged due to an inflammation causing increased fluid and or increased white blood cells within the lymph nodes. That inflammation's cause can be a simple mild infection or inflammation. Unless the TMJ is associated or caused by an inflammation or infection within the joint, then the surrounding nodes could swell.
