swollen salivary ?
Aug 4, 2001
I'd like to thank you from the bottom of my heart for this forum, for your kindness.
I went to two doctors regarding possible ARS like symptoms, one of which are a pair of swollen glands in the neck, on both sides of the esophagus, right at the point where the neck joins the head. I haven't noticed them before. Sometimes they are almond size, other times they are as big as half of a walnut. One doctor said they were swollen lymph nodes. The second doctor said they felt like swollen salivary glands. One interesting thing to note is that when I go jogging (my mouth gets very dry), they shrink down to pea size or almost undetectable. But an hour later, they're back to being almond size. Do lymph nodes do this? Should I be extremely concerned? No other detectable lymph nodes.
Thank you Doctor.

Lymph nodes would not do that in such a quick fashion.
