Could it be a bad thing if one of your lymph nodes (swollen glands by your jaw) breaks off?

Could it be a bad thing if one of your lymph nodes (swollen glands by your jaw) breaks off?

Continuous chains: Lymphatic system absorbs and carries things too big to go into the arteries and veins like bacteria eaten by white cells and digested food. Lymph nodes "taste" the lymph to see if anything bad is there like bacteria/viruses/cancers, etc. They enlarge in response to the inflammation they create when they react. They are all connected so they cannot just break off, it may have shrunk or pushed deep. ...Read more

I have Sjogrens syndrome and have had to have both submandibular salivary glands removed and now on both sides of my neck below the jaw the lymph nodes are very hard and have not changed for almost a year do I need to be concerned?

I have Sjogrens syndrome and have had to have both submandibular salivary glands removed and now on both sides of my neck below the jaw the lymph nodes are very hard and have not changed for almost a year do I need to be concerned?

maybe not lymph?: Are you certain that what you feel are lymph nodes? Perhaps it could be calcified scar tissue that healed like that after after your surgery? Have they been intermittently hard or constantly? If constant, it's possible they are clogged and may have to be opened. ...Read more

Swelling under the jaw. Could it be lymph nodes? Or the salivary glands? I don't think it's my teeth or wisdom or jaw. Symptoms on my other question.

Swelling: Can't see your other question...system doesn't work that way. As a general rule, any pain, swelling, or bleeding should be immediately investigated. Could be lymph nodes swollen from trying to filter an infection, or partially blocked salivary gland, or draining abscess, or so many other things. Bite the bullet, call your Dentist or an Oral Surgeon for an examination. ...Read more
