ENT Exam: You've asked numerous questions on the forum about your submandibular glands. You are obviously concerned. See an ENT doc for exam to put your mind at ease. ...Read more
Probably not: My first question is whether it is your submandibular gland or a lymph node that is swollen because they are two different things. If it is your gland then you may have a blockage or an infection. If it is your lymph node you probably have an infection. In either case you need to see your oral surgeon and have him take a look at things to see if you need to be on antibiotics. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Gland Swelling?: After extractions swelling is normal in many areas of the mouth. Glands, muscles, joint area, and tongue have all been known to swell. If the swelling persists past 7 days or is painful on light pressure after 4 days, it is recommended that you return to your surgeon for an evaluation of the area. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

I have Sjogrens syndrome and have had to have both submandibular salivary glands removed and now on both sides of my neck below the jaw the lymph nodes are very hard and have not changed for almost a year do I need to be concerned?
Post submandibular salivary gland removal issues i had my left submandibular salivary gland removed about 10 weeks ago due to a chronic infection we could not clear up w/. Antibiotics (keflex). My symptoms started last june w/.My tongue going numb for br
Good : Good info but confusing. Where was the infection and why was it attributed to the submandibular gland which came back pathologically normal? What were the symptoms and signs of the "chronic infection"? The lingual nerve does provide sensation of the anterior two-thirds of the oral tongue (among other things) and inflammatory involvement of it by glandular infection may cause pain but not typically numbness. Malignant tumors, such as adenoid cystic carcinoma of the submandibular gland ( most common type in this gland), tend to have perineural growth patterns and can cause pain and numbness, if involved, but don't typically present with signs of " infection". I think it is very reasonable to see a neurologist for this to rule out possible neuropathic causes and consider further imaging studies such as MRI with gadolinium. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Pain under jaw in submandibular gland, CT ,mri and dental X-rays normal. DX of salivary gland problems or oromandibular dyskinesia. Would botox help?
Perhaps, but: It makes more sense to find out what is the cause of the pain and dyskinesia. The most common cause for such pain is an unresolved infection draining from an unhealthy tooth. Dyskinesia can be a local factor related to the TM joint or a systemic factor, such as a stage 2 Lyme Disease manifestation like Parkinsons Disease or MS. ...Read more
