Sore gums swollen lymph nodes

Common Questions and Answers about Sore gums swollen lymph nodes


Avatar_m_tn There are times when even if the infection is resolved, these <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>lymph</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>nodes</span> persist. A recent and ongoing infection can cause progressive enlargement of the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>lymph</span> nodes. Do not worry too much. If it will give you peace of mind, you can push for a biopsy of one of the lymph nodes. That will give you a more definite diagnosis. Stay positive.
Avatar_n_tn My Primary Dr said since no other enlarged nodes were found in other regions, he is not concerned about lymphoma. Are there other conditions that could cause <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>lymph</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>nodes</span> to be <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>swollen</span></span> for this length of time? Should I be as concerned as I feel about this, or is it more likely not related to something serious? Is it possible to have lymphoma without nodes in other regions showing signs? Are biopsies only done when cancer is suspected?
Avatar_n_tn After six months ago (a point where my gum/mouth had been swollen for about a year), I noticed that two of my submandibular <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>lymph</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>nodes</span> were <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>swollen</span></span>. They aren’t huge, maybe 1 cm or 1.5 cm, but it’s hard to measure them because they’re sort of deep. They don’t really hurt, and I still have them to this day, which of course makes me concerned about lymphoma. But I’m not experienced enough to say if they’re “hard” or “rubbery” or “fixed” or all the other key descriptors.
Avatar_m_tn I do not have a fever or a rash or feel like i have flu, just this damn sore throat and swallen <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>lymph</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>nodes</span> The research says that swallen <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>lymph</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>nodes</span> are only when one if fighting an infection such as hiv - this absolutely terrifies me ////
Avatar_n_tn Can anyone tell me if they think my latest question on my abdominal pain and sore testicles could be related to my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>lymph</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>nodes</span> in my groin? Where exactly are the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>lymph</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>nodes</span> in the groin? Do they need to be swollen to be causing this sort of pain? I don't seem to see anything swollen in my groin, but could my lymph nodes be giving this sort of pain without me knowing? When people talk about the lymph nodes causing them pain, are they always swollen? Thanks.
Avatar_n_tn Hello, Tinnitus and <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>swollen</span></span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>lymph</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>nodes</span> give rise to the possibility of inner ear diseases or meniere’s disease.Pls get yourself evaluated by an ENT specialist for that.swollen lymph nodes indicate an infection and your upper respiaratory tract and tonsils may be causing it. Tingling of tongue can be due to diabetes, hypothyroidism, peripheral vascular disease, vitamin B12 deficiency or malnutrition.It is also common in alcoholics.Pls get yourself evaluated for these.
3227684_tn?1347376665 It was the first time I touched them, but I could palpate <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>lymph</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>nodes</span> (small and not sore) on my neck. I don't know if I was able to feel them before, because it wasn't a concern. After that, I got two HIV tests which came back negative (seven weeks after the event, and one year and one month after). But even two years after that episode, I am still able to palpate those lymph nodes on my neck. Is it normal to feel them?
Avatar_f_tn If I read your post correctly, you do not have a <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>swollen</span></span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>lymph</span> node. There are not palpable <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>lymph</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>nodes</span> either behind or on the side of the knee which can be felt by anyone so the spot that you are worried about is something other than a lymph node. Perhaps some sort of skin infection or other process. If it concerns you, you should seek the advice of a trained clinician.
Avatar_m_tn and my wisdom teeth are coming out to the point of my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>gums</span> bleeding when I wash my teeth. I also had <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>swollen</span></span> tonsils, kinda like an infection/cold a couple of weeks ago. What can it be? Does somebody think I may have an STD?
Avatar_n_tn Finally as regards swollen lymph nodes, we get many questions on this forum about <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>swollen</span></span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>lymph</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>nodes</span>. The fact is, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>swollen</span></span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>lymph</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>nodes</span> are a very node specific finding and in and of themselves do not suggest HIV. In your own case, the fact that you had swollen nodes which then went away further make HIV most unlikely. When all of this is taken together, your risk of HIV is near zero and there really is nothing you should be worrying about. No further testing for HIV is warranted.
Avatar_m_tn There are so many things that can cause your <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>lymph</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>nodes</span> to <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>swollen</span></span>. I don't have any answers for you, but did find this lengthy article on the subject: I am happy to hear that you aren't having night sweats, fevers or any other symptoms.
Avatar_m_tn see if your doctor can right you an antibiotic that works for all kinds of infections like upper respitory that also helps with <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>swollen</span></span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>lymph</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>nodes</span> and infection at the same time, i hope this helps
Avatar_f_tn <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>swollen</span></span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>lymph</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>nodes</span> are an indication of a virus. Have them check your white blood count and also get a mono test. Mono isnt just passed through kissing, but even if you just eat or drink after someone.
Avatar_m_tn On the 25th day I had an antibody test which came back negative and my GP told me to take it as a conclusive result since my exposure was oral and the risk was low. But the thing is I had bleeding <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>gums</span> and a healing canker sore at that time and I did a mouthwash for just a few seconds just to get rid of the bad breath I had before I met the guy. There was no ejaculation except for the possible pre-cum which I don't remember tasting.
Avatar_n_tn with the sore throat, I feel like one of the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>lymph</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>nodes</span> is <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>swollen</span></span> on the left side. There is no fever accompanied with this though. Am I reading too much into it?
Avatar_n_tn Hi. Do you have <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>swollen</span></span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>gums</span>? The <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>swollen</span></span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>lymph</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>nodes</span> on your chin could be secondary to a tooth infection. Are you still taking the antibiotics given to you by your doctor? You can observe if the swelling will subside with antibiotic intake, though most of the time, the lymph nodes will just decrease in size but will not completely disappear.
Avatar_f_tn You don't need to worry about ARS as you never had a risk.
Avatar_n_tn I have fillings in all of my molars/wisdom teeth, & from time to time the bottom left ones will get sore for a couple of days but it's usually nothing serious. well, yesterday it was worse than usual so i put a warm teabag in my cheek to see if that would help. long story short, i went to brush my teeth about 30 minutes after i put on the tea & my gums in that area had turned blood red & were bleeding pretty badly whenever i put the brush to them.
Avatar_n_tn There are cold like symptoms of sore <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>lymph</span> glands on each side of the neck and runny nose. What is this? This discussion is related to <a href=''>swollen left side of hard palate - around the arch of mouth</a>.
Avatar_m_tn Ie wouldn't it be likely to have <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>swollen</span></span> glands in his neck and groin as well as arms? Are <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>lymph</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>nodes</span> usually detectable by touch? Sight? We cannot feel any individual 'nodes' just a general noticable swelling and pain beneath the arms. There have been no other symptoms that we can think of. Are swollen glands/nodes also associated with other std's?
Avatar_n_tn Baby’s primary herpes infection could be very mild, or could manifest as mouth soreness, gum inflammation, fever, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>swollen</span></span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>lymph</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>nodes</span>, and a sore throat. Wishing You Optimal Health, Dr.
Avatar_n_tn Yep, me too, constant sore throat and <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>swollen</span></span> glands, and just like Chev, very <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>swollen</span></span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>lymph</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>nodes</span> in the left groin area. (What IS it about left-groin favoring women?) But back to the throat issue-- it's just another sign of an activated immune system, just like the skin itching and the whole panoply of side effects that are the result of an overproduction of immune complexes. In other words, it's all good.
