Hi doc,

1 Answer:

Hello Jasmine, thank you for asking.

Maybe what you meant was that at this time you had an enlarged glans in the area around the ear. Normally there is indeed a gland in the area around the ear, located behind the earlobe slightly downward close to the jaw. The gland can be a lymph node (lymph gland) or it can also be a parotid gland (salivary gland). In certain conditions the gland may experience enlargement. Enlargement can be caused by an infection or inflammation process, the presence of cysts, or the presence of a tumor. Infections are generally caused by viruses or bacteria. Acute infections can be accompanied by fever, painful swallowing, pain when chewing or opening the mouth. Can also be accompanied by symptoms of acute respiratory tract infections, such as coughs, colds, and inflammation of the throat.

Have you checked your doctor? How long have you experienced this? The doctor will look for signs of infection, for example through examining blood samples, chest x-rays, or tuberculosis tests. If the enlargement of the gland caused by infection, the doctor will provide therapy according to the cause, for example anti-virus or antibiotics and anti-inflammatory. If the doctor suspects a tumor or cyst, the doctor may do a biopsy to find out the type of tumor cell. In the meantime, there can ease sore throat by drinking plenty of warm water, avoiding cigarettes, alcohol, and oily foods. Choose the type of food that is easy to swallow so it does not cause pain.

Hopefully this answer can help you find a solution yes. Regards.
