Lump in neck, growing, have dental issues, have flu and cold. What is wrong?

I have a lump on left side of neck , recently getting bigger. I felt around and have smaller one on right side, sort of where the vein would be. I know, I have been having teeth problems because can afford dental any longer and feel sick a lot from that, and sometimes feel like heart is effected by this. I have been getting sicker and sicker lately, but the flu cold has been going around that is quite bad, but lump was there before, now today, noticed a lot bigger. Im a little worried maybe health issues from teeth and then getting sick on top of that, but keep telling people for months feel like someone that would be dying. But just letting it go. Im so beautiful and love my looks but feeling so sick and lump on neck is actually hurting a little tonight, what could this be??

Hello there... Problems associated with teeth, nose and sinus (infections arising from them) would drain into the lymph nodes in the neck region....these get enlarged and become painful....there are swellings seen in neck as a result of an abscessed lower tooth- the infection spreads down to the neck and manifests in the form of swelling...swelling in each part of the neck has its own significance. Clinical examination is mandatory. if teeth related consult a Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeon. Otherwise you can consult an ENT surgeon for further management.
