Patient : I had a few cancer sores in my mouth about 3 months ago. Short,y after I noticed a small pea sized lump under my jaw line along with another pin sized lump. After a few months of them not going away I went to see my doctor. The doctor discovered another one on the side of my neck when examining me, but said that she though it was likely a result of infected teeth. She did blood work as a precaution and it came back normal. Now about 5 weeks later I discovered another swollen lymph node on the other side of my neck and when I feel around I seem to feel other slightly swollen nodes. I am not sure if this is a result of constantly feeling them. I do have several bad cavities but am getting ver concerned that this could be lymphoma. I am 32 and have no other symptoms. I have a doctors appt scheduled for follow up but I am driving myself crazy worrying that it is something serious. Could the swollen lymph nodes just be a result of infected teeth?
