Are swollen glands common with canker sores? Could I have an infection? I have had a huge canker sore on my cheek now I have a small ones on my tounge, lip, and back near my wisdom tooth and my glands are swollen and feels better after i brush.

Yes: The glands are lymph nodes which are part of your body's defense mechanism. When fighting off infection, they may swell up and become tender. The location of the sores you mention and the swelling of the glands leads me to suspect that you might be having an episode of herpes in conjunction with the aphthous ulcers. You might want to see your dentist or family md for an evaluation. Feel better. ...Read more
