    What causes submandibular lymphadenopathy along with sore throat?

Posted on Thu, 27 Jul 2017 in Ear, Nose and Throat Problems
Question: What is the cause for a swollen lymph node that is 2cm that doesn't go down, with a sore throat for 3 years. I have had every CT scan and MRI, and fine needle biopsy, but nobody can tell me why it is swollen, or why I have a continual sore throat. They tell me LPR, but to me that doesn't make any sense since my RSI is low, and the lymph node is swollen (submandibular)
