brief lymph question
Nov 22, 2005
Dr Henry, I have discovered what I think may be a swollen lymph node just below the ear opening about 1mm in front of the ear. It is painless, not visable <1cm and cannot be moved. If I flex my jaw muscles or open my mouth it disappears. Does this sound like a lymph node?
Response from Dr. Henry
Lymph nodes are located in the region you desribe. What is your HIV status and which HIV drugs are you taking so I can comment further. KH
