like everyone else-im looking for reassurance. I have swelling of lymph node under my jaw, but other than a VERY mild sore throat, im not sick. I remember noticing the swollen lymph node a year ago, and somehow i got over it, (I felt my dads jaw, and he had the same thing under his jaw) but im getting anxious about it again. Every once in a while, iget some discomfort in the node, if i tilt my chin to my chest, or turn my head to look behind me. This is a mild pain/discomfort, but not painful. I do have a similar lymph node under my left jaw as well, but it seems slightly smaller. they move easily and seem almost "slippery" -maybe the size of a lima bean or larger-its hard to tell really. does anyone else get this? I clench my jaw alot, and I have TMJ, but I dont know if that would cause the "submandibular" lymph node to swell. Please let me know if youve ever had this, or worried about lymph nodes like this. im scared its lymphoma HIV, or some other metastatic cancer.
