How are you? What other symptoms are present? The most common cause of swollen lymph nodes is infection. It can be due to an ear infection, colds, flu, gingivitis, mouth sores and skin infections. Swollen lymph nodes that are painful and appear suddenly are usually associated to injury or infection. It is good that you were able to have some tests done and this may help with the diagnosis. However, it is best that you have this directly checked also by your doctor for proper evaluation. Take car and do keep us posted.
