It could be your TMJ, I get swollen nodes from TMJ occasionaly, or you may be getting a slight infection. I very much doubt if it's any of the others you are worried about. Has your doctor checked this out for you in the past, if not maybe you should have it checked just for your own peace of mind. Take care and feel better.
The last time this member posted was in October of 2006. Did your swelling go away on its own or were you medicated with anything in the ER?
I would think it may be wise to follow up with your primary care to make sure that all is well.

I am so happy to hear you are going to follow up with your physician. We will all be waiting to hear what he has to say. Also remember if you feel your throat or airway is being compromised in anyway, get to the ER. It is natural to worry when we have some physical sx but try to stay in the moment and don't let it take over your life.
Remember you have anxiety, it does not have you.
