can a cavity cause swollen glands in neck and under chin?
I have had swollen glands for 6 months and it all started out with a bad neck pain which the doctors all thought was whiplash then i started noticing that i had swollen glands all down the left side of my neck and under my chin then about a month ago i started getting facial pain so i took a look at my back left wisdom tooth and it has a huge black hole in it it feels jaged on the bottom of the tooth and it feels like it is the whole one side of that tooth.
what im asking is could this huge cavity be causing my swollen neck and chin glands? and could i have an infection with these minor symptoms?
