Monitoring Centers: Lymphatic system absorbs/carries things too big to go into the arteries/veins like bacteria eaten by white cells and digested food. Lymph nodes "taste" the lymph for anything bad like bacteria, viruses, cancers, etc. When it detects a problem, it alerts the immune system and your body reacts.

Have had a swollen lymph node under my right jaw for over month and a half. It shrank in size 2 weeks ago but hasnt gone down since. Its very hard.

Watch and wait: As it has gone down in size, it would be safe to watch and wait. You may feel the node every couple of weeks, if the lymph gland doubles in size, becomes painful, ulcerates, or other nodes become enlarged, or you develop fever, you should see a doctor.
For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Drink enough water daily, so that your urine is mostly colorless. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually.

Was being choked (under my consent) during sex. I have pain under the left side of my jaw. The lymph node feels slightly swollen. Should I be worried?

See MD: I would recommend seeing the MD to evaluate the area. It is always possible in a choking situation that the bone under your throat/jaw (hyoid bone) can be damaged / broken. Important to have this checked as soon as possible. Urgent care, ER, family MD -- get seen while you are still having symptoms. This is how fatal accidents can happen. Good Luck. ...Read more
