How many days accur parotid glands swelling?

How many days accur parotid glands swelling?

Depends on the cause: The parotid gland can become swollen for a number of reasons. A proper diagnosis will help you determine how long the swelling might last. Common conditions include a blocked salivary duct or a bacterial infection (parotitis). Swelling may be constant or come and go with salivary stimulation (during meals), and may or may not be associated with pain. I suggest seeing a doctor for an evaluation. ...Read more

The extra fluid can lead to a rapid increase in weight over a short period of time (days to weeks). Swelling can occur all over the body (generalized) or only in one part ...Read more

Salivary glands swollen for 2 years now.  Ct done only shows that they are enlarged biopsy done on gland  lip only shows inflamed gland dye test done?

Lots of things: Unfortunately, your description is not detailed enough to be of true help to you, but there are a wide range of diseases that can appear in the salivary glands. These range from reactive (stones), inflammatory/immune (sjogren's/igg4 disease), to neoplastic (tumor). A thorough discussion with the doctor who ordered the biopsy should be quite useful. ...Read more

Sir...Parotid glands swelling will be heal in HIV without medications?

Sir...Parotid glands swelling will be  heal in HIV without medications?

Not likely: The parotid gland can become swollen for a few reasons, infection, blockage, or benign growth. If you have hiv, your immune system is likely not as strong as it could be to fight the infection. Regardless, a parotid gland infection usually needs medication to resolve. If the swelling is due to other than infection, than a different treatment would be needed (other than medication). Good luck. ...Read more

Salivary gland biopsy. Dr. Made an incision no salivary glands.  Dr said may have atrophied  did 2nd incision & found glands. Is it consistnt sjogrens?

A normal occurrence: I assume it was a lip biopsy. The initial biopsy just had no glands in it. Glands are scattered in the lip and it is not unusual for a biopsy to not contain any glands. They did not atrophy. That is nonsense. ...Read more

Swollen lymph nodes on left neck, could it be from eczema + acne? Should the swelling go down after 5 days of antibiotics? If not, is biopsy needed?

Swollen lymph nodes on left neck, could it be from eczema + acne? Should the swelling go down after 5 days of antibiotics? If not, is biopsy needed?

Painful or painless?: Is the lymph node painful or not? There are several reason of lymph node swelling. Infections can be one of the cause, and antibiotics would reduce the size in general if treated appropriately. Acne doesn't usually cause swollen lymph node unless secondary infection exists. Any tooth infection, sinus problem? If no changes in the lymph node size after treatment, you may need biopsy. Good luck! ...Read more

Hives: The cause for hives is often obscure unless one can specifically identify the trigger (food , drug, viral infection). In chronic hives, about 30% is considered an autoimmune process. As for swollen neck glands, any inflammation from the neck up may cause it. However, if present for more than a few weeks, one needs to consider a blood disorder such as lymphoma. ...Read more

Not expected: Sebaceous cyst is not associated with lymph node enlargement thus I question if the mass is indeed from a cyst or something else. Check with your doctor again since this is not the usual course or treatment for that condition. ...Read more

2cm swollen left submandibular gland for 6 months following throat infection.Health is fine and blood tests are fine, should I worry? Is it lymphoma?

2cm swollen left submandibular gland for 6 months following throat infection.Health is fine and blood tests are fine, should I worry? Is it lymphoma?

Unlikely: You may wait and watch. Check the glands once every two weeks or so. If the gland more than doubles in size, becomes painful, additional glands become large, you develop fever, lose weight, or if the gland ulcerates, it would be time to see your doctor. For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form. Practice safe sex. Get HPV vaccine. ...Read more
