I assume he is taking a decongestant as well; if not he should be. If nothing is seen by scoping him, he may indeed need another ct scan to evaluate his persistent symptoms. ...Read more

I have headaches, and flu like synthoms, and pain on my left side I have swelling under my chin and neck the size of small ball

You: You are probably experiencing enlarged lymph nodes. This occurs when your body is fighting off an infectious process. The lymph nodes are increasing in size because they are producing white blood cells which help fight off infection. They usually decrease in size in about 4-8 weeks. However you should still have your doctor examine you to make sure this is in fact the cause, and to treat any infections that are present.
All the best. ...Read more
