My daughter (10 Yrs Old) has had swollen red tonsils and swollen glands in her neck for about 3 weeks. Her doctor stated she was positive she had mono but the all the tests show negative. Due to the glands still be swollen at 3 weeks and no improvement with antibiotics doctor is still convinced she has mono. Should I be seeking a second opinion? Any reason to be concerned?
That same day of my encounter, I took an anti-inflammatory pill because by wisdom teeth are coming out impacted and they were hurting and they were swollen. It seemed to have worked. Now, can my swollen tonsils mean that I got an STD or could it be that my swollen tonsils are just a result of my wisdom teeth coming out?
There are also white patches and I get a lot of lumps on my tonsils. I went to the doctors and the doctor told me I had normal tonsils for a 23 year old, but I disagree. Does anyone else inspect their throat? What can they see? I'm really worried I have throat cancer. Please help!
I have swollen gland on my left hand side of my throat, I have no tonsils, but when it really gets really swollen I find it very hard to breath and swallow, please help.
Hello, I am a 23 year old female with swollen glands... I have had swollen glands for about 3 years now. Occasionally some of them will decrease in swelling, but they will swell up again and the majority of the time are swollen. I had my tonsils out in July of 2009 because the Doctor thought I was having infections and that was the cause of the swollen glands... but they are still swollen. I have one under my left clavicle.
I thought it was a dental issue so I went to see my dentist who told me that he could not find a problem but confirmed that my tonsils were swollen as well as a gland in my throat which was also sensitive when pressure was applied. My dentist prescribed a 10 day course of antibiotics which I took. The swelling and sensitivity stopped exactly one week after it started. During this time, I did not experience any other symptoms - no fever, no muscle pain, no fatigue, etc.
a few months ago i started to develop swollen glands at the back of my neck though no other pain, a month after this, i developed very swollen tonsils which the doctor said was tonsillitis however it was not the same as previous bouts of tonsillitis i have had.
She then caught a cold and had bronchial cough which was treated with cough prescriptions with codeine. However, she still had enlarged neck glands that are irritating. Her tonsils are full of craters and catch bacteria. Any thoughts on the glands?
I'm not a Dr, but yes what you describe can come from the allergies and/or the drip that sometimes become a bit more thick and/or infected from the root cause -- the allergies .. thus, the glands get swollen as they try to rid the bad bacteria or virus as it goes through, I'm a mom of kids with severe environmental allergies ,, this is what we've seen as well as it turning into sinusitis. The snoring can be from enlarged adnoids I think I've heard .. you may want to confer with an ENT.
but this time i had no cold or anything and my submandibular glands got swollen. I dont really know what to do and im trully scared from something like cancer. I would like to know what could it be and what should i do. Does those blood tests indicate if i have cancer or something or i need to get another test for cancer? Thank you for reading and im waiting for your answer as soon as possible. p.s. Might it be possible for the both glands to get swollen from a wisdom teeth problem ?
Please take this short symptom survey :) Does anyone have persistent swollen glands right under the jawbone? Does it impede your swallowing? Do you look like Kermit the Frog? BTW, last time I checked with FibroSpect (3 yrs ago), mild fibrosis and inflammation. I'm not on tx.
swollen tonsils are from herpes? what about swollen lymphnodes under jaw? this went away with antibiotics after a few days...
no pain on urination, however a little itching inside the urethra and discomfort if I pressed my urethra, the tip of my penis was a little red, but no secretions, just the urge to urinate more often than usual. I then developed swollen tonsils with lots of white lumps over them. I took 500mg of Amoxycilin twice a day for 6 days. The white lumps went after 3 days; the tonsils stayed raised. I also had/have tenderness in the glands behind my ears (on pressing), but no pain in my throat.
They don't bother me, I have no other symptoms, no cough, no sore throat, no swollen glands in neck, and there are no whilte spots. I went to the clinic and the doctor told me it could be caused by my abcess tooth. It is the last tooth in the back and the gland under it is big. I have made an appointment to get it fixed but it won't be until the end of next week. My question is, can my tooth cause my tonsils to get red like that?
For 2 months now, I have had swollen lymph nodes/glands above my collarbone. On and off I have felt sick, just very drained and a sore throat. I also have a swollen area on my chest that the doctor has told me is a bone but there isn't a swollen area on the other side of my chest, they don't match like the doctor said and also, some swollen lymph nodes in my groin area. Just curious as to what if anything anyone has had or had done about this. I do see an ENT next week. Thanks for any info!
We also noticed about 9 weeks ago that she has swollen glands behind her ear on the opposite side of the head to the 'odd' tonsil, two lumps which are visible to the eye. I have included a photo of my daughters throat showing both tonsils and would appreciate any feedback especially from anyone medically trained or with experience of this kind. Many thanks in advance. My poor baby.
Drinking sips of warm water, lemonade, soups etc also helps. Since there are swollen glands the possibility of EBV or mono too should be looked into apart from a bacterial infection. Complete the five day course of antibiotic, and follow the suggestions. If they do not help, consult a doctor. Take care!
i started having body pains, fever, headaches and all those weird feelings in my body and swollen glands on my neck and jaws. I was so scared that i asked the girl to go to clinic first because she also experienced some funny illness and itchiness on her vagina. She went to the clinic and they told her she had Chlamydia but they never tested her. She was put under medication. I also went to the clinic and was given Chlamydia medication...
none of these things are really that sore they are uncomfortable they feel like a kind of electric shock pins and needles feeling like an ache for maybe 5 seconds. i still have my swollen tonsils but none of my lymph nodes are swollen. i dont think i have a fever reason i see that is because i dont have a thermometer in my house and don't know how ot teset for a fever otherwise. i have a doctors app on friday but would just like to know what anyone thinks i may have .
I've been gargling and wiping down the tonsils. Do I need an antibiotic? My tonsils became really super swollen and painful a couple of months ago (when I was in a different but very stressful situation) but tests came back negative for mono, strep, etc. I did an antibiotic series at the time and they were still swollen but went down a few days later.
A recent CT scan showed enlarged tonsils. My family physician said the ENT would be reluctant to remove tonsils and/or adnoids even after the few treatments with various antibiotics I've already recieved. I can't understand why. I have trouble with long conversations, my voice seems to have changed a bit all along with being in constant pain. Any suggestions!
I went to my doc on Monday and by then my tonsils were pretty swollen and had white lumps on them. I've had a few strep throats during my life so I figured that was it. My glands were fairly swollen too. Anyway she prescribed me Calvepen, which she said is pure penicillin. On Tuesday, I went to my own Doc (a different one) who prescribed me clavamel (apparently it's penicillin based). Anyway I took Tues and Wed off work, and went back in on thursday.
