Right side jaw pain, sore when touched, pulsating feeling with swollen lymph node. What is it ?

i have been having some jaw pain on the right side. It is mostly only sore when i touch but occasionally will stay slightly sore for a while. This pain has come and gone for a few months. I also notice a pulsating feeling when i touch it and i have had a swollen lymph node for 4 months maybe. I went to the doctor about the lymph node and said it was not a big deal. Just curious what this pain could be. thanks.

Welcome to Healthcaremagic.

The pain in the jaw joint could be due to inflammation in the joint.A detailed examination would be necessary to identify the exact cause for such inflammation.

The lymph node enlargement could secondary to the jaw inflammation.The lymph node will regress when the jaw inflammation is treated.

Wish you good health.
