whenever i eat, the vein under my tongue pulsates and i get a lump in my throat on the right side. it hurts so bad that it prevents me from eating sometimes. should i be worried?
Hellowhere is this lump
in my throat, on the right side. under my chin. it gets hard and the vein under my tongue (which i believe it's attached to) pulses
OkThe lump is a submanibular examif you feel you will find a gland on the other side to match it, there are twocorrect?
yes but the right side gets hard and hurts alot whenever i eat anything. my father died of mouth cancer 22 years ago at age 47. i just get scared.
OKno these swell normallyBut the one might have the stone and that is why it is bigger getting clogged up.An ENT doctor can probably remove the stone.Once this is done it should not swell when you eat.The vein is probably having a harder type draining and this might get better as well.But go to an Ear Nose and Throat specialist.A CT of the gland can show the stoneNot cancergood lucklet me know if you have further questions
Thank you Dr. I think I'll be able to sleep tonight.
