Need more info...: About your symptoms and the imaging. Lung nodules and growth within or next to the submandibular gland raise suspicion for cancer, but need to put all of the data together.

Could be metastatic: Lesions of lung associated with oral cancer is not that uncommon. Higher possibility of such disease in lung would correlate better if cervical nodes had been present initially. Bx is essential to initiate therapy if needed. A PET/CAT could indicate possibility of lung mets. Thorascopic bx would be helpful for deciding on definitive management. ...Read more

I have an elevated pth with normal calcium. I also have multiple lung nodules. I now have swelling in my lymph area near the collarbone area?

Get evaluated: You have many findings that warrant further workup. Elevated PTH may be due to a functioning parathroid adenoma. An ENT can do that workup for you. The lung nodules are worrisome and require further workup as well. May be a completely separate medical issue. You may need a ct guided biopsy of one of the lung nodules to sort this out. Seek professional help. ...Read more
