Can tooth problems cause swollen glands

Common Questions and Answers about Can tooth problems cause swollen glands


Avatar_n_tn About eight months ago I got 15 amalgams removed and one rotten root canal tooth extracted. Now I have <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>swollen</span> lymph nodes just below my right ear and constant pain in the back of my neck that feels more like swollen glands than any thing else. I just had my hearing tested and it is fantastic. Does anyone have any ideas for me?
Avatar_n_tn Immune or autoimmune disorders that can cause <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>swollen</span> lymph nodes include rheumatoid arthritis and HIV. Cancers that can cause <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>swollen</span> glands include leukemia, Hodgkin's disease, or non-Hodgkin's lymphoma. Which lymph nodes are swollen depends on the type of problem and the body parts involved. Identifying the location can help determine the possible cause. swollen lymph nodes may also be caused by some medications (like phenytoin for seizures) or certain vaccinations (namely, typhoid).
Avatar_n_tn I would think that if I had cancer or something HIV wouldnt my bloodwork been adnormal somehere??? I did read that gl<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span>s can stay <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>swollen</span> for a long time after a infection or injury.. I am sure you are fine. About 18 years ago I had the gland in my groin and in my armoit swollen for 8 months and I am still alive.. I never went to the doc I was too scared and no insurance. So hopefully that will help you, though I keep telling myself the same thing.
Avatar_f_tn If your chin is swollen then it's possible that a bottom tooth is indeed in need of help. Did the doctor check your gl<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span>s? <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>swollen</span> lymph gl<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span>s can cause all those symptoms.
Avatar_n_tn Another more likely scenario is that the abscess will escape the jaw bone and spread to the soft tissue of the head which is extremely dangerous. It can spread down the neck and cause breathing <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>problems</span> or spread to the spaces near the brain. 2) I'm not familiar with your financials but you may want to contact your local dental society and see if there are any resources available for your situation.
Avatar_n_tn 21 year old male, never had any <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>problems</span> until gl<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span>s are <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>swollen</span> only on the right side of my neck....throughout the day, they become enlarged, but then they will go back to keeps flip flopping back and forth..sometimes when they are enlarged i can see my neck pulsing....i have not been sick and the swollen glands do not give me any pain..i have no other symptoms....i got checked for strep throat but that came back negative...
Avatar_f_tn My husband and friends try, but they really don't understand how I can still feel so bad after all this time. Or how I can possibly still be having so much pain from <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>swollen</span> gl<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span>s in my neck after so much medicine and time. Seems to stump my doctor too!! and I'm not sure, but I don't think that's a good sign when you stump the doctor!
Avatar_n_tn You need to go to your dentist asap to get your tooth taken care of or it will get worse and can cause you more <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>problems</span>. We all have to do things we don't necessarily like in order to be healthy, but you just have to get it over with. It's most like swollen lymph nodes because the rotting tooth is causing an infection and your lymphatic system is working overtime to try to keep you healthy. Make an appointment with your dentist to get your tooth taken care of.
Avatar_m_tn I will be more specific. My submental gl<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span>s are <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>swollen</span> and my submandibular gland is <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>swollen</span>. Under my jaw there is like a knot that has been there for 2 months. I am seeing an ENT next Tuesday. But what could i really have if all blood was fine?
Avatar_n_tn If the vet cannot find any obvious reason for the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>swollen</span> gl<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span>s, they will run a blood test to see if there'sany other cause. They don't do that during an ordinary annual health check usually.
Avatar_m_tn Too much stress can cause swollen glands and swollen tongue, which I have. Every doc so far thinks its no big deal. Please don't drive yourself nuts. I now have abdominal pain and its scaring the hell out of me but I refuse to let it get to me. I have pain under my belly and right above my crotch. Sometimes it feels like its my testicles until I feel around there and notice that there is really no tender spot. Some type of virus is going around.
14776903_tn?1437687992 I also have a wisdom tooth which is still growing and might get infected at times. It is actually located on the same same side where the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>swollen</span> gl<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span>s appeared. INFECTIOUS MONONUCLEOSIS: I think it was easier for me to endure the spinal fusion surgery which took me 4 months to recover rather than infectious mononucleosis. In 2011, I had a lump on the left side of my neck that was as big as a golf ball. I still remember my GP's face when she saw it!
Avatar_n_tn You should get tested for mercury toxicity. It can cause a lot of these types of <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>problems</span>. I posted a reply to this thread back in November. I was as sick as others and had all the tests and scans, but nothing showed up. I was lost for a long time (and in a lot of pain), but 3 months ago I had a urine test for mercury and it came back high. It is hard to find an MD to do this though, as most will tell you its not a problem.
163305_tn?1333672171 right now my gl<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span>s are a little <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>swollen</span> on either side of my jaw. has been for 2 days. chalked up to just another thing....
Avatar_n_tn The scariest part is the gland on the left side of my neck is enlarged and I am frightened that I could have cancer. It isn't huge and it isn't tender but my neck is sore. No other <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>swollen</span> gl<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span>s that I can feel. My question is if I do have some sort of an infection wouldn't the Penicillin before the oral surgery have cleared it up? Or the Zpak before that? Is there some sort of ear problem that could cause pain down my neck with a swollen gland?
Avatar_n_tn Penicillan and cephalexin can cause that, even delayed. It takes months sometimes to get it out of your system.
Avatar_n_tn I always have and was wondering if anyone else out there that has these swollen nodes in neck also have <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>problems</span> with their teeth and also wondering if <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>problems</span> with teeth (infections and such) could cause the nodes in the back of the neck swell up. Also, the glands in the front of my neck have always been large... these problems I've experienced have gone on for years... So, I'm hoping its nothing serious because, if it is, and I have it for years.... what chance would I have?
Avatar_n_tn I was doing some research on this Hyoid Bone, and when you have <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>problems</span> with the acid reflux, it can cause a lot of <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>problems</span> in your throat, which I'm sure you are familar with, and the acid reflux can actually cause tumors in the throat, and they can become cancerous. I try not to take a lot of the information to heart until I get the facts, but I can't help but notice many of the symptoms they list for this cancer and tumors I have or have had.
Avatar_n_tn Lymph Nodes I thought and since I had a cold didn't think much of it. I am now experiencing <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>swollen</span> gl<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span>s all over my body, it started out on just the left side, except for the neck. (this is the side that I had the gland removed from) Now I am feeling lumps all over that seem to burn and are symmetrically dispursed throughout the body. I have been on antivirals, Pennicillin V for 4 weeks, Augmentin for 20 days, Singular, and Clairnex D.
Avatar_f_tn I also have GERD and take Prevacid but someone told me that the stomach acid can also cause intestinal issues. Unfortunately, quitting my job or taking time off is not an issue right now, but I will be taking a few days off in June as my first grand child ( a girl....Yeah) is due on the 12th. My students are taking off the last 2 weeks of June. Thanks again.
Avatar_m_tn Hi there. I hope someone can give me some advice. I've had horrible <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>swollen</span> neck for 3 months now. I don't have a sore throat or ear aches. I'm not losing any weight. I've been to the doctors multiply times. I've had many blood tests for mono, viral infections etc...all normal. I've had an ultra sound on my thyroid gland...normal (I have a family history of Thyroid cancer). I'm having another ultra sound on my whole neck in a week. I've taken antibiotics...
Avatar_f_tn I thought it was apart of my clitoris but found out I can remove them, it's like a build up of some sort? It's like my gl<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span>s aren't working properly or something and it's causing build up under my hood?!?! However, if I remove these little white spots, my clitoris swells and becomes sensitive for days before I feel better.
Avatar_n_tn my body has gone through everything from sharp pains and muscle spasms all over my body, peeing blood, swollen and painful gl<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span>s, kidney stones, irregular heartbeat, vision <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>problems</span> and skin <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>problems</span>'s like a never ending twilight zone movie. I'm getting stronger, but still suffer from some fatigue, but last month I played 4 games of basketball for the first time in 2 years and have started riding again, only about 10-12 miles...
Avatar_n_tn I just got out of the hospital for the same thing... Mine was a serious staph infection in my nose.... This is nothing to play with it is serious you need to go see your doctor right away...
Avatar_n_tn Whats even worse is girls assume you're some oversexed guy, and you flirt with them, and its all a joke, cause I'd rather jerk off to porn than have sex with them. That *****, cause I know girls can take that personally, like they're not attractive enough, but mostly its cause I'm too stressed out/terrified, and now I'm also thinking its the whole porn thing. and I think it is. I went on a 2 week trip to a foreign country where I had no privacy, and I was horny as hell.
Avatar_f_tn could be severe allergies, scarlet fever, lyme disease, TB, tonsilitis, an abscess...or he could just have swollen glands.
Avatar_n_tn Hi Everyone. This is my first post. I started having <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>problems</span> about 5 years ago. It was occasional problems such as mild sinus pain/pressure and headache with mild eye strain. Each year it has gotten worse. Over the course of the past 5 years I have seen multiple doctors across different specialites: Ears, Nose & Throat, Neurologist, Allergist, and my Intern. I have had MRI's and CT scans. This year has been the worst so far. I have already gotten 2 sinus infections.
Avatar_n_tn They also would not be caused by Herpes 1 in people with no other apparent serious health <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>problems</span> like HIV. Bacterial Vaginosis and Yeast Infections may cause inflammation and small cracks in the folds of the skin, they do not cause cuts in center areas of the skin, and they heal without reoccurance once the infection is treated. An anal fissure can sometimes occur in the center area of the pernium (between the front and back) because of straining or constipation.
Avatar_n_tn A few days ago I noticed a sore, reddish <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>swollen</span> lump on my left inner thigh, right along my bikini line. It has since gotten larger (about the size of a nickel, and more elongated now). It only feels sore if I press on it or rub against it. It seems like a soft lump that moves around with the skin. Last night I applied a warm washcloth to it for about 30 minutes, which made it feel better. Could this be a swollen lymph node, or maybe an ingrown hair?
Avatar_n_tn It says skin inflammation is characterized by itching, scaling, reddening or occasionally blistering. Do tell! and it can cause dermatitis, can cause corneal damage or blindness, skin inflammation and blistering. Of course they're referring to the chemical alone causing these Nasonex is also bad because many people have gotten Rosacea from using it. That's exactly when my Rosacea started too, after I had been given a prescription of it.
