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.

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.

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.

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.

The ultrasound report on my swollen lymph nodes under my jaw said they are hypoechoic and vascular. FNAB to come. What % that it's benign?

Lymph nodes

Enlarged_lymph_nodes
Lymph nodes are throughout your neck and body. They can enlarge for a variety of reasons including infection, inflammation and even cancer. Often, a needle aspiration of lymph nodes helps to tell what is going on with a lymph node, so this is the right step in the process of evaluation. The ultrasound characteristics are somewhat concerning, so get the needle test so you'll know what it is.
