Lymph Node: Possibly a lymph node, enlarged from a draining abscess. Tooth pain indicates need to see a dentist immediately. If this is a draining abscess and it flares up you could be in a serious medical emergency which could include throat closure and toxins traveling into your chest. Do not dismiss the symptoms your body is giving you.

Teeth pain: May indicate oral infection, abscessed tooth/teeth and/or gum/bone disease. As a result you may have involvement of one or more of your lymph nodes. Start with a thorough examination by your General Dentist and go from there.
