i have not had a fnac or needle biopsy done or visited a ent doctor i have not had any tooth related or throat related problems by the way what is aFNAC

Thanks for your reply.

 

The location at which you have described the lump, it can either be a lymph node or can be a submandibular salivary gland. Lymph node can be due to some previous infection and salivary gland can be due to some blockade in its duct due to some stone or concretions in the duct. Cancer sort of things are not possible in your case because of long history however it can be some benign lesion of the salivary gland.

 

You should visit an ENT doctor for this and should get FNAC done, its fine needle aspiration cytology, done by inserting a fine needle in the lump to get its cells and getting them checked under microscope.

 

CAE is not related to this.

 

I hope this helps you.

 

I wish you good luck for all.
