I noticed a swelling in the area of the left submandibular gland. It is firm but movable and I can roll it almost to the lateral side of mandible. I can almost grasp it between my fingers. No pain.On the opposite side I feel something but not to the degree of the left. I would say wirhour tissue coverinf it about one centirmeter.

Thanks for the query

I would like to know a few more details in order to come to a conclusion

1. Any history of throat infection in the recent past?
2. Any history of increased salivation?
3. Any history of loss of weight?
4. Any history of malignancy in the family?
5. Have you noticed any increase in size of the swelling?
6. Does the swelling feel matted?
7. Any other such swelling in the body? Like in the axilla, groin, elbow, clavicle?

Please get back to me, I am awaiting your reply
