Large Swollen Gland In Neck
I have a large cold sore, swollen glands in my neck and sever mouth/tooth pain. What is going on and what doctor do I see?
Your dentist: This could all be related to the "cold sore" but with what you are saying about the tooth pain.

Can you guys tell me how big does a gland in the neck need to be before it is considered swollen ?
Monitoring Centers: The lymphatic system carries things too big to go into the arteries/veins like bacteria eaten by white cells/digested food.Lymph nodes "taste" the lymph to see if anything bad is there like bacteria, viruses, cancers, etc. When it detects a problem, it alerts the immune system and your body reacts. They enlarge in response to the inflammation they create when they react and you feel them. ...Read more

Not likely: If you do not have nasal symptoms or discharge, it is not likely to be sinusitis. It is not feasible to say, what it is without examining you. If your symptoms do not abate in a week or so, it would be prudent to see your doctor. The enlarged lymph glands are of particular concern and you should get it checked. ...Read more
I had surgery 10 days ago. i had skin graft from hip and it was placed on foot. its a large section of heel. Could this cause swollen glands in neck?
No: A skin graft to heel taken from hip places the surgery below the umbilical area where nodes to groin in rare instances may show enlargement. I suspect this is a free split thickness graft that requires immobilization of leg and foot to keep graft in place until healing occurrs. Glands in neck as a response to surgery would only be associated with surgery of the H&N. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
