Dr. Daniel Quon answered:

Should I be worried if I have a salivary gland disorder?

Depends

Salivary_gland
You have major salivary glands as well as minor saliary glands that produce saliva. There are a number of salivary gland disorders. Whether or not you should be deeply concerned or not will depend upon your symptoms, the glands involved and the diagnosis provided for you by your doctor.

Will the doctor be able to tell if I have a salivary gland disorder?

Yes

Salivary_gland
salivary gland disorders are a broad group of disorders. You need to be more specific... ie: drooling, dry mouth, swelling of the salivary gland, pain, abnormal taste sensation, etc. More specific questions will lead to more appropriate answers...

I have swollen glands in face and just under the jaw, any tups?

You may need medical

Head-face
A medical evaluation by your family doctor or ENT doctor can help you sort it out . If the glands are increasing slowly then you need to go see a doctor. if they are just sitting there and are under one cm in size, they can be ignored for now.

Dr. Robert Kwok answered:

I have swollen glands under my jaw and it feels like my jaw is slightly swollen. Recently started Flovent inhaler. Related? Cause for concern?

And Flovent is for?

Open-uri20120929-18362-oq366o
Swollen glands (lymph nodes) are unlikely to be from the Flovent, but more likely to be from the reasons Flovent is being used. Flovent is used for asthma, which worsens when a person has a cold, a flu, a sinus infection, or allergies. Those conditions can cause swollen lymph nodes in and around the neck. Of course, it's possible that the swollen glands are due to other unrelated reasons, too.

What does it mean when you have a really sore throat, stuffy & runny nose, and swollen glands under your jaw?

You are sick

Fever
Sorry to be blunt, it sounds like you have a bad viral infection, flu or cold. It is also possible you could have tonsillitis or pharyngitis leading to swelling of your lymph nodes.

I have excrutiating pain in my jaw in front of my ear and have swollen glands behind my ear and neck. The pain seems worse after eating. Could this be a parotid salivary gland blockage or cyst? I don't have a fever or any other symptoms and haven't had a

Sialadenitis

Head-jaw
The history is indeed suspicious for parotid infection (parotitis) and/or stone in the parotid duct, but it is not clear exactly what is going on. Other possibilities include neck abscess or lymphadenitis. All of these are pretty high acuity problems that warrant prescription medication treatment. I would consider ENT evaluation, or see your primary. If it's bad, ER evaluation is appropriate.

Dr. Debi Williams answered:

Pain on right side of jaw and swollen glands?

Illness or teeth?

Open-uri20121009-31634-9rtanh
I would visit dentist to check for abcessed teeth. If the dentist says teeth are fine, I would visit doctor to rule out virus or bacterial infection. In the meantime, rest, drink plenty of fluids and take whatever over the counter medication works well for headaches.

Enlarged swollen glands under jaw, do I need to remove it?

No

Enlarged_lymph_nodes
It is common for these glands to well up from any kind of sore throat. They would likely go away on their own. But if they are painless and start growing in size beyond 2-3 weeks then you need to get a medical examination to be sure that nothing more serious is affecting the lymph nodes.

Dr. Michael Miller answered:

Could it be a bad thing if one of your lymph nodes (swollen glands by your jaw) breaks off?

Continuous chains

Enlarged_lymph_nodes
lymphatic system absorbs and carries things too big to go into the arteries and veins like bacteria eaten by white cells and digested food. Lymph Nodes "taste" the lymph to see if anything bad is there like bacteria/viruses/cancers, etc. They enlarge in response to the inflammation they create when they react. They are all connected so they cannot just break off, it may have shrunk or pushed deep
