When lymph nodes/glands are swollen under the jaw, is something wrong?

In brief: Painful nodes

Point toward infectious etiology, and jaw pain may indicate dental cause, particularly closed off abcess.
Dentist & x-ray would be my first stop. The list is longer for painless nodes. In the area under the tongue/floor of mouth, a salivary gland can be the cause with a duct obstruction.
