I just felt a small swollen gland under the left side of my neck.  I went to see an ENT quickly, I was at work when this happen.  The doctor has told me I have submandibular gland Infection.  I am to take this medicine for two week to cause the swelling to go down, it not he's going to do a CAT scan.

Have the both of you gotten better, your message are dated back to 2007, this is 2009.

just came home from ER my 3 year old had a lump size of golf ball under his jaw line left side, no fever, no pain they did a cat scan didn't find anything blood work came back fine, sent us home with anitbiotics and said to follow up with peditriction on monday  I kind of hate myself for putting him through IV's and Catscan he is only 3 but were worried because of the location and size didn't want to wait it out on antibiotics fear of the unknown or breathing issues, it is killing me what he went through today but glad nothing serious
