Have Medical Questions? Ask a Doctor Online!
Hello, this is Dr. David. I am reviewing your question now and will be with you momentarily.
I am sorry you are having some pain in your lymph nodes
viral infections can cause your lymph nodes to swell up and be tender and sore.
lymph nodes can also swell up after recent surgery close by
these lymph nodes should get slowly better over time
gargling with some salt water and using some cool packs on your neck and surgery area can help
let me know if you have questions.
cancer would not spread that quickly to cause your lymph nodes to be sore at this point.
I am a cancer doctor. you will do fine with the surgery on the other side.
let me know if you have other questions.

cancer would not cause pain there
you most likely are still healing
it could be a new viral infection causing lymph node swelling.
