Swollen Gland
I have one swollen gland on the left side of my neck beneath my chin.  In December '12 I had sore throat, coughing, and infected ears and swollen gland.  Went to the Doctor, and she gave me an anti-biotic.  Didn't help.  I went back January 8th and she gave me another anti-biotic because I still have infected ears.  Did blood work.  Came back ok except for my Potassium was slightly low.  As of today, Jan. 11, I still have swollen gland.  How long does it take for them to leave?  My nerves are getting the best of me.  I am 70.

Hello and hope you are doing well.

After the primary source of infection resolves, it may take upto 4-6 weeks for the glands to fully resolve. If there is persistent low grade infection, the glands may continue to be enlarged. So, please don't worry.

Hope this helped and do keep us posted.
