Can a long-term wisdom tooth eruption cause symptoms like swollen lymph nodes under chin, behind ear and enlarged gland right under the tongue?

Can a long-term wisdom tooth eruption cause symptoms like swollen lymph nodes under chin, behind ear and enlarged gland right under the tongue?

Yes, It is infection: Wisdom teeth usually appear between the ages of 16 and 25. However, sometimes they appear many years later. If you are experiencing pain, swollen lymph nodes and it does not go away or if you find it difficult to open your mouth, you should see a dentist for evaluation, x-ray and wisdom teeth removal.

Recovered from ear infec. Antibis worked. Worried abt 2 swollen glands just above collar b either side. Bloods clear. Could this be lymphoma?

Not Lymphoma: Not. Not at all. Swollen glands are supposed to be swollen when they are fighting off an infection. A healthy immune system has lymph nodes that swell. They are palpable. They are a sign of health not a sign of cancer! Once they swell they can take several weeks to resolve.

I have equally sized bumps behind both my ears. I'm wondering if they are swollen glands or just my mastoid bones?

I have equally sized bumps behind both my ears. I'm wondering if they are swollen glands or just my mastoid bones?

Bones.: Everyone has non-movable very hard bumps behind the ears. Swollen glands move around within the skin, over the bone. They are soft and usually smaller than 1cm in size.

Reoccuring infections in body, everyday a new problem, post nasal dip from 10 months and now swollen glands behind ear. Please suggest?

Reoccuring infections in body, everyday a new problem, post nasal dip from 10 months and now swollen glands behind ear. Please suggest?

Anxity can only harm: Human body is pretty strong and is rarely affected by frequent infections....yet you can get paranoid about it and become anxious in which case you will start imagining all sort of bad things. Just assume that your body is fairly healthy and will remain so, provided you quit worrying about minor things like postnasal drip which is often an imaginary ailment...nothing serious here.

My son is 15 months old and about 2 months ago he had roseola w/swollen glands behind ear they are still there and one in groin. Is this common?

My son is 15 months old and about 2 months ago he had roseola w/swollen glands behind ear they are still there and one in groin. Is this common?

Yes: The glands will always be there but will usually peak in size within a week of the infection and slowly decrease in size over a 3-4 wks. If another process stimulates them they may not shrink completely. I rarely have to do anything with glands in these locations.

Woke up w/swollen glands infront/behind my ears and directly under my jaw. I don't have any other symptoms or pain. Drank a lot the evening prior.

Needs to be checked: It is not related to your drinking but swollen glands need to be checked. The glands can be enlarged due to infection or other causes.

Had swollen glands weeks ago had blood tests and sexual tests all back fine now I have a blocked nose and ears are blocked is there any relation?

Had swollen glands weeks ago had blood tests and sexual tests all back fine now I have a blocked nose and ears are blocked is there any relation?

May be: Sounds like you had an upper respiratory infection that leaded to temporary swollen lymph nodes. Your nasal congestion and ear fullness are related due to eustachian tube dysfunction. Allergic rhinitis is a common cause for persistent nasal congestion and ear blockage. See an ENT doctor.

Why have I got severe ear pain in my left ear & swollen glands in my neck on the same side? I smoke a pipe and drink in excess. I am a 53yr old man.

Why have I got severe ear pain in my left ear & swollen glands in my neck on the same side? I smoke a pipe and drink in excess. I am a 53yr old man.

Possibly cancer: I don't want to worry you, and I'm a cancer doctor, so I always think about cancer. But this is something you must have checked, and the sooner the better! Tobacco users are at risk for head and neck cancers, which can cause ear pain and swollen lymph nodes on the same side. It's also possible you have a viral infection. With cancer, the lymph nodes are often painless and hard. Get seen soon!

Recurring swollen lump under left armpit. Painful not red. In last, had swollen glands behind ear for months at a time. Worried about cancer.?

Recurring swollen lump under left armpit. Painful not red. In last, had swollen glands behind ear for months at a time. Worried about cancer.?

Not likely for you: Your age argues against this being a cancer. It is suspicious for some kind of infection or inflammatory problem. Consider seeing a surgeon or dermatologist to discuss the possibility of hidradenitis.

Red itchy skin & ears & swollen glands in neck since moving to new place. Gets worse after I've been in laundry room. Using same detergents. Help!

Red itchy skin & ears & swollen glands in neck since moving to new place. Gets worse after I've been in laundry room. Using same detergents. Help!

Allergic reaction: We can develop allergies even if we haven't changed the type of products we use. I would start by changing my laundry detergent to a hypoallergenic one. If that doesn't work, you can use a hypoallergenic soap like neutrogena. If you are no better after these changes, you need to see a dermatologist or allergist.

Need evaluation: It is not feasible to provide a meaningful opinion without taking additional history, physical examination and may be some tests. It would be prudent to see your doctor as your symptoms warrant an investigation about the cause.
