In brief: Normal

Submandibular glands can normally be up to about 3 cm in size, so approximately the size of a walnut.

In brief: Yes, submandibular

Glands can be palpated (felt), and the size of a walnut would be within normal limits.
Ct shows them very well, and will also show any lymph nodes around them.
