I've had painful enlarged lymph nodes in my neck and over my mastoid bone for over a year. My doctor is trying to evaluate me. Possible causes though?

There are too many

Bones
But if this has really been ongoing for a year,a biopsy might be in order.

I've been having pain in my mastoid process and I haven't done anything to it. It feels swollen compared to my other side. Any advice?

Possibilities

Dentist
It could be a muscle strain, inflammation of the attachment to the mastoid process, or a tear in the same area. I might suggest seeing a specialist in craniofacial pain for a diagnosis and appropriate treatment. You can go to www.aacfp.org for a list of dentists.

How are dentures put on? Is the process painful?

Typically

Open-uri20130324-3652-11zqwn7
All of your teeth are removed maybe upper, lower or both.After sufficient healing, impressions are taken and then after several appointments of try-ins, they are completed and placed in your mouth resting on your gums. Depending on several factors -size of remaining ridge, "toughness" of gums, any opposing teeth, you may or may not have pain & you may need adjustments to the bite and the length.

How painful is the recovery process after a bone graft?

Slight to moderate

Bones
The postoperative pain from the bone graft cause by three reasons: 1) infection, 2) uncontrolled swelling, 3) collateral damages during the grafting procedure. A grafting procedure should be carried out with least collateral damages to the area, i.e. the complete flap closure, patency of covering tissue, fixation of the graft. Medication will control swelling, infection, and pain.
