    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.

      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.

      Well, my scare was just a scare, I had a swollen node as I thought, but apparently, it was just from an issue I had inside my mouth with a sore. Thanks for your help and answers. #BulletDodged

      @KancerKiller In your case, enlarged lymph nodes are a very positive sign. Without an effective immune system fighting infection, your life is at far greater risk than with any cancer. Infection can take you in 1-2 weeks. No cancer on earth can do that.

      Paul Allen? He did not die of cancer! He died of sepsis - massive infection that his immune system and even IV antibiotics could not control.
