I've recurrent swelling in my left parotid gland from past 9 years. Initially the swelling would happen occasionally, once in a month or so but gradually its frequency increased. Now it happens 5 to 6 times in a day, associated with meals.
It is never painful and subsides on its own within in 30 to 45 mins. But sometimes the swelling is very huge and it presses on my ears, jaw, etc..
Now from a year i've a persistent diffuse swelling of 2 x 2 cm in this gland. I finally showed it to an ENT.
In India very few hospitals have Sialendoscope. My therapeutic Sialendoscopy in Delhi has been planned for 18th of March.
The MRI indicates stenosis, let us see if Sialendoscopy will releve my problem.
