Is it normal to have swollen right superclavicular (~1cm) when experiencing left side sinus pain/cheekbone pain for previous 2 months?

It is on the opposite side, but do you have a diagnosis for the sinus/cheek pain? Are there other swollen nodes in the neck, jaw, or armpit for example? You should probably be seen by someone who can evaluate all of this. Good luck! ...Read more
