Those are in the front and sides of the neck, the back and sides of the neck, underneath your tongue, in your groin. You can look in an anatomy book. As the infection goes away the nodes slowly shrink. For more assurance see your doc!! ...Read more

I feel lump under jaw on my left side especially it is visible when i m swallowing. Ent said its nothing and MRI came back normal! it is not symmetric?

SEE SPECIALIST: My question is was the MRI with or without oral contrast if the MRI negative with oral contrast then you have a inflamed salivary gland that could be enlarged and inflamed and still can fouled the MRI and looks normal for that two weeks course of antibiotics and reevaluate still the possibility of pocket in the esophagus but that should showed in MRI with contrast. ...Read more

Agree it is insignif: The basic function of lymph nodes is to trap germs and attempt to kill them,,resulting in their enlargement,other causes,that need further evaluation,if the glands are suspicious and keep enlarging,since the lump is getting smaller,there is nothing to worry at this time. ...Read more

Evaluation needed: I can't tell you what it is. It will take an exam to determine this. But lumps and bumps are common. Do you have pain? How long has it been there? How large is it? Is it growing? If you are concerned , have pain, or it does not go away then talk to your parents about scheduling an evaluation with your doctor. ...Read more
