Swelling, pain in lymph nodes, pain in jaw, throat, itchy bumps in throat. Chewing tobacco, dental problems. Causes for symptoms?

I have been using chewing tobacco for about 8 months now. I dont know if that has anything to do with it but 7 days ago I noticed that my lymph node under my jaw was swollen and hurt. I could massage it and it would stop hurting for a little bit, but start up again. 2 days after that I noticed a lymph node in the middle of my neck hurt. Yesterday It started hurting in my jaw and now moving towards my throat . All this is on my left side. today I can reach down in my throat and feel a bunch of bumps that kind of itch , i guess. I m kind of worried and don t know what it is. Also, My wisdom teeth have been giving me trouble only on my left side. If anyone knows what this is please let me know.

thanks for your query, the most common causes for your lymphnode enlargement and tenderness could be due to odontogenic infections, but multiple lymphnode enlargement could be seen secondary to any tumor arising in oral cavity (metastasis), and some time in tuberculosis...kindly consult a oral physician and a general physician for complete examination and proper diagnosis... i hope my answer will help you..
with regards..
