Thanks a lot for your input. I am a head and neck surgeon and can assist you. I am sorry to hear about your problem. I am going to address your primary concern but later you can ask anything you want. Bilateral means on both sides and submandibular means under the lower jaw. So this means that you have mass on both sides under your lower jaws. If the mass is present on both sides, this means that they are not likely to be associated with anything serious. Your next step should be to see an ENT surgeon and get needle biopsy of the masses and proceed according to the results. Most likely cause can be infection or stones in the ducts of the submandibular glands because of which they can get enlarged and can present as masses. I wish you good luck and that you get well soon. My goal is to provide you with excellent service – if you feel you have received anything less, please reply back as I am happy to address follow-up questions. Kindly rate me when you are done. You can come back here to ask anything even after you have rated the answer. I will be glad to help you always. Regards

Thank you for your reply. I am presently taking 500mg twice a day on Amoxicillin for 5 days.
Doctor: Dr. Hasan, Doctor replied 1 month ago

You are most welcome. If it's an infection, amoxicillin will clear the masses and you might not need any further investigation. My best wishes and prayers will be following you. I wish you good luck and that you get well soon.

I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
