    Curious about if anyone has had salivary cancer here?

    I'm probably just freaking out but I have a salivary gland that is cramping up, and I think I have a lymph node swollen. I have an appointment but not for a couple weeks. I'm wanting to know if this is a symptom.

      #Molly72, sorry to hear that. Maybe they have made some strides in this kind of surgery. Plus, I am using Mederma cream. It is working great on the scar. I'm thinking of having a tattoo done on my neck seeings how I'm numb. Ha!

      Hi! I had a parotid gland infection. It happened after some dental work. The side of my face was red and warm to the touch. Ended up in the ER followed by lots and lots of follow up appointment. It was pretty uncomfortable. They saw the infection on a CT scan. I was also running a fever. Fortunately it did clear up. But my main symptoms were swelling, redness, warm to the touch and a fever. Let us know how it goes.

      Molly, my right side is numb from ear down to my Adam's apple. That was from the radical neck dissection I had on my right side.
