Jaw pain one side swollen gland

Common Questions and Answers about Jaw pain one side swollen gland


Avatar f tn My one year old staffie (female) has suddenly developed a large swollen area on the right side of her neck/jaw. She does not appear to be in pain and still wants to eat. What could it be and what should I do?
Avatar n tn Hello All, I suddenly got a painfull swollen gland / lymph node under my jaw bone / neck area on only one side. The gland is swollen enough that you can almost notice a difference between each side of my neck. This started last night out of nowhere. The only other symptoms I have is a slightly sore and runny nose but I just got over a sinus infection. Otherwise I feel fine. Why is it only on one side and what could it be?
Avatar n tn I had a mild sore throat and ear pain(left side only) daily accompanied by a soreness in the back of my mouth where the jaw hinges. I took a Zpak for the sore throat which helped a little but the ear pain remained. I saw my dentist who noticed my lower left wisdom tooth had broken the skin. The three others were 1/2 way out. I elected to have all the wis. teeth removed. I had it done on 3/31 and took Penicillin 500mg for 7 days 4 X a day.
Avatar m tn Eating/brusing my teeth/talking to loud or yelling/shaving/touching the ear or gland area under the ear/if i'm walking and i step too hard on that side/bumps and potholes when driving now cause sharp stabbing pains through teeth and right side of jaw and cheek. Pain is constant but each time a stabbing pain is triggered the constant pain that was already there becomes more intense for the rest of the day. Hitting too many triggers causes severe throbbing and headaches.
Avatar f tn If it was me I would be more than concerned ,as I would be in to see an ENT doctor and then a Dentist. That is not Fibro and a blocked gland or swollen gland does not always affect the jaw, you have a trigmential nerve in that area, teeth, tissue and the rash is a sign something is going on. See a Specialist (ENT) a good one, to see what is really going on right away...if it is an infection it could go to your brain. So, do not take it lightly.
Avatar m tn hello forum, I recently had a sexual encounter about a month ago where i had unprotected intercourse with a woman. A few days ago glands on the underside of my jaw became swollen. I have also had a cough and a mildy sore throat and runny nose for a few days. I also just noticed what i believe is swollen nodes on each side of my lower abdomen just in line with my hips. Does this sound like ars symptoms?
Avatar n tn Mac our cat visited thhe Vet today with a swollen left side of her mouth. The vet advised he did not know what is was, maybe a tumor. The vet examined her very vigourously and she did not resist or complain. It would appear that it does not hurt her. This has persisted over 3 weeks, swelling up then reducing down, and swelling up again. Reducing down. She is eating but not as usual. Water intake is normal.
Avatar m tn hello, i have a swollen lymph node on the left side of my neck, before it started i had this burning right at the bottom of the throat, it would come and go yesterday and now i have swollen gland on the left side of my neck and its right under my jawline it is a little hard, does anyone know what it could be ? and if it's serious ? or should i just wait a few days and see if the swelling goes down? and also is there any possible causes of it?
Avatar n tn I have one bumpy spot on the skin of the inside of my left cheek and my dentist just said it was an opening of my gland, but it is not like that on the other side. He also said I have some TMJ issues, but would that cause my glands to swell and hurt? I also have had a metallic taste in my mouth for a couple of months now. Since I've kind of always had these problems, is this something I should be seen for?
299912 tn?1341626700 I noticed last night while in the shower that there was a swollen lump directly behind the curve in my jaw on the right side of my face (in between the back of the jaw and almost below my ear). Initially, I thought it might be a lymphnode until I researched it and determined that it is most likely the parotid. It is only slightly larger than the left and is tender (mildly) but only it you push on it and then a little while thereafter.
Avatar f tn For atleast a year ive had a swollen node just below my jaw which aches and can get quite uncomfortable. I have been to the doctor who said to go back in 3 weeks. I did that on the 23rd dec, and he felt it again, looked at my salivary glands too said they were fine however that my swollen gland felt firm. It moves, but he said it feels like a jelly bean rather than a jelly baby! He mentioned cancer to me since i am not ill with an infection amd has referred me on to the ent specialists.
Avatar n tn Can GERD cause a fullness feeling in my right ear as well as a swollen gland on the right side of my neck? or is the swollen gland causing the fullness felling in my right ear and on the right side of my neck? Thank you for any help.
1569575 tn?1314427659 My main concern is the painful, swollen gland/node in my neck. I'm not entirely sure which one it is. It's right behind the corner of my jaw, about an inch below my left ear. In the past three days, it has swollen up to the diameter of a 50 cent piece. I'm also experiencing pain throughout my neck and down to my left collarbone. Accompanying this are headaches, fatigue that's so bad I almost feel narcoleptic, and sweating. The sweating isn't just at night, but all the time.
Avatar n tn Now I only got this swelling when I first visited the chiropractor - my question is could the Thymus gland cause pain in the skull and back area ? Today I suddenly find my ears feel blocked and buzzing, and the hearing is very low in the lift one, the same side as the swelling. Could this be related ? I have made an appointment with my doctor, but she never said much when I mentioned and showed her the swelling last visit.
Avatar f tn I've recently had some new concerns about a past exposure. I am a woman, and almost three months ago I engaged in sexual contact with a man of unknown HIV status. I do know that he has been with a lot of women. The contact I had was: 1. Licking the shaft of his penis (probably got precum in mouth); 2. Performing manual sex on him with a small cut on my hand that I'm positive came into contact with semen. What I am most concerned about is the cut on my hand.
Avatar f tn I won't find out the results for a few days and I am very anxious. The specialist performing the biopsy said it was a swollen lymph node in the parotid gland. I havnt had any symptoms lately of any disease or infection to my knowledge. (I'm a 16 year old female) -the lymph node is about 2cm big, painless, hard, immovable -a long time ago (probably last year) I experienced night sweats a few times a month. But I havnt had them anymore.
Avatar m tn -6/20/13 sexual contact or exposure -7/20/13 got a cold/mild flu (congested, dry Cough, fatigue, sore throat -7/27/13 due to pain/discomfort, noticed a swollen salivary gland under my right jawline while eating. -8/23/13 developed a cold (dry cough and very congested) -Present still have lump/swollen salivary gland. Intermittently when swallowing my submandibular and paratid produce pain and intermittently produce a dull ache. Could this salivary issue be HIV?
Avatar f tn But just below my cheek bone and a thumbs length from the ear is a pain. Smack dab where I would think my salivary gland is. Just one side and just there, not the gland along the front of the ear or the jaw. I have no clue if I should tough it out and see if it goes away on its own, see my primary care, see a dentist, see an ENT. I'm pretty POSITIVE its not dental since I go every 6 months to care for my teeth. Odd part, it gets worse at night and better during the day.
Avatar m tn To you Dianne if it's just bb sized you can probably push it out yourself, helps if you push on the salivary gland under your jaw. I got one out about 10 years ago that size before this big pea sized one. If it doesn't bother you, might be best to just leave it alone too....
Avatar n tn I'll call it in the back of my head, near the base of my skull, it burns and feels like it's pulling, my ear on the side sometimes gets a sharp pain in it also, when the burning thing is going on my ear is very sensitive to noise, feels like someone has a megaphone next to it.
Avatar m tn my gland on the right side of my neck is really swollen. I sometimes get pain in my low abdomen. I am not sure whether my jaw pain is TMJ or something else.
Avatar f tn For a couple months now I've had a swollen submandibular gland on the right side only. It seems to fluctuate somewhat in size from day to day, but is always swollen and always bigger than the one on the left (where I can't feel it at all.) I feel like it makes my throat feel tight sometimes. I first noticed it about 3 months ago, I don't know if it was swollen before that. For almost 3 months I have also been having some pain/pressure in my right ear and in my jaw on the right side.
Avatar n tn Glands swollen on the side of my neck too, yada yada yada! Except it is causing me downright debilitating pain! I mean I'll feel it coming on and within an hour i cant even think straight! It starts under the right side of my jaw, and progressively creeps up to my ear, and then both of my temple will start throbbing. If i finally fall asleep, i would think it would have gone away. Nope! And pills wont even touch the pain. And i mean "Any" pills.
Avatar m tn I woke up yesterday morning with one side of my face swollen. It feels hard and bumpy just below my ear and it causes discomfort when I try to eat. Can you tell me what it might be?
