Swollen gland under jaw/tonsil stones for a year.

Posted , 2 users are following.

Hi, I have had a swollen gland right under my jaw along with tonsil stones quite often, for a year now. I used to have a bad after-taste (like moth balls, ewww), but that pretty much went away.

I am in the process of de-stressing my life and getting more sleep. Maybe I got too run-down?

I also had some cavities done, but don't think I had an infection.

Thanks! Gina

      Also, do you know if it's your lymph node for sure? I think mine is tonsil, (about an inch from jaw bone). I know that sometimes they have to be removed, hoping not.

      Hi Ambee, the tonsil stones look like little greyish/balls & smell bad (eeew)! They come up from the throat a few times a week still.

      I still have a swollen tonsil or something on one side.

      Sounds like you have the same thing. 

      I read that the stones are harmless, but I think a   year is too long & tired of those crazy things!

      I am going to the Dr. within a month to see what's going on, so I'll keep ya posted.

      Hope you feel better!

      Hi, I will let you know & same with what you find out too. 

      If you see white things on the gland itself, sounds like Mono. But you would be feeling pretty bad though.

       I had that in 87' & both glands are still slightly larger permanently now. Don't know what that's all about.

      It sounds similar to what I have. When I had Mono, the glands were huge and covered with white spots. It made my throat extremely sore & bed-ridden for 2 weeks. That was 17 years ago, and still about twice the size they used to be. I have asked several DR's over the years when I would be seen for a cold, & none of them thought it was a problem at all or explanation of why they're still swollen or whatever.

      But having the gland under jaw larger, need to find that out soon. Hmmmm?
